Welcome to Shamrocks & Shenanigans!

Race Update!
 
Hi Shamrockers!
 
Thank you all for your patience this week as we dealt with a rapidly developing situation. We found ourselves in uncharted waters and we needed time to reach out to the appropriate community organizations and local officials to get our race plan in order. The Washtenaw County Health Department met this morning to discuss the state of the county and we will no longer be able to offer the run portion of Shamrocks & Shenanigans. The health and safety of our participants is our top priority and we're doing our part to assist in the efforts to slow the spread of the Coronavirus.
 
We love our participants and will make every attempt at maintaining the FUN of this event. We will now be hosting the Shamrocks & Shenanigans runs virtually. There is more information on this below.
 
Above all else, Shamrocks and Shenanigans is a fundraiser for Save A Heart. We hope you will understand that there will be no refunds or deferrals for the Shamrocks and Shenanigans 2020 event. 100% of the race proceeds from this event go directly to Save A Heart. Race shirts, medals, insurance, awards and bills have been paid. A refund would take directly away from the Save A Heart donation.
 
RACE PACKET PICK UP TIMES
 
You will have 4 chances to pick up your race shirt and medal (as well as any additional pint glass and hat purchases you made). The pub is open all weekend long and will still be holding their St. Practice Day event on Saturday, as well as all St. Patrick's Day celebrations! Grab a pint with us. There will be additional shirts for purchase available as well!

VIRTUAL RACE RESULTS
 
Join in the run-fun on your own time, at your own pace, wherever you want! Get out for a 5K run between now and Tuesday, March 17th at 11:59PM and upload your results to THIS LINK! We will still be presenting awards to randomly selected participants who upload their race results!
 
Need some motivation? Running Fit's downtown location (123 e Liberty) will be hosting two chances for you to get your 5K in at a group run! Monday, March 16th and Tuesday, March 17th both at 6:30PM.
 
Be a good health Steward
 
We are still encouraging people with compromised immune systems, current illness, parents with infants/toddlers, and the very elderly with health issues to consider staying home, as those are the populations that appear to be susceptible to the dangers of the virus. Consider having a friend pick up your shirt and medal for you! Don't show up if you are feeling ill or have flu-like symptons. Wash your hands!
 
Please be kind to one another and be patient while the entire country attempts to maintain the spread of this virus. 
 
We're so bummed we won't be able to offer you the opportunity to run with 1,000's of your closest friends but hope we can still keep the spirit of this charity event alive all weekend! We hope to see you at a packet pick up or another event soon.
 
Your Shamrocks & Shenanigans Crew
 
 
 
Save A Heart is an organization that raises funds to benefit patients and their families who come to the Michigan Congenital Heart Center at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital. Highly experienced cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, intensive care specialists, nurses, social workers, anesthesiologists and radiologists provide comprehensive care for infants, children and young adults with congenital heart disease.
 

 Funds raised by Save A Heart support families with travel, lodging and other expenses. These funds also support clinical research. In a time when more medical costs are being shifted to the patient, one of the goals is to relieve the families’ financial burdens during a very stressful period in their lives.
