Race Information

The Shamrock Shuffle 8k is a huge celebration of the beginning of running season. It is the world's largest timed 8k, starting and finishing in Chicago's Grant Park. Runners feel the energy of over 30,000 runners and a big cheering crowd (present during the entire course.) The excitement lasts throughout the after-party, where participants find beer, food and live music. 


Course Information

The Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle 8K course starts and finishes in Chicago’s Grant Park and mirrors segments of the famed Bank of America Chicago Marathon route as it tours downtown. Look for Chicago's miniature version of Heartbreak Hill near the finish of this otherwise flat, fast course.

Like a miniature version of the Chicago Marathon course, the Shamrock Shuffle starts and finishes in Grant Park, beginning by heading north under the BP Pedestrian Bridge and finishing off with Chicago’s (miniature) version of Heartbreak Hill on Roosevelt. An impressive tour of downtown Chicago on foot. - See more at: http://newcity.com/2013/04/07/race-review-bank-of-america-shamrock-shuffle-8k-april-7-2013/#sthash.thhR78HD.dpuf
