About This Activity

Shamrock Shuffle
Presented by Monmouth Rugby Football Club in support of the Wounded Warriors Project

The 2nd Annual Shamrock Shuffle is set to take place on Sunday, March 20th in Thompson Park (Lincroft, NJ).

Registrants can look forward to a fun and scenic 5k run/walk loop, followed by a 1 mile Fun Run for kids 12 and under. After the running concludes, an awards ceremony will be hosted for our top runners in each age group.

The fun doesn’t end there! All registrants will receive a swag bag from our sponsors, an exclusive invite to our St. Patrick’s Day themed after-party (picture Guinness, Corned Beef and Cabbage, Live Music and raffle prizes for both kids and adults!) and so much more!

The Shamrock Shuffle is sponsored by the Monmouth Rugby Football Club. Proceeds from the Shamrock Shuffle will go to support Wounded Warrior Project. Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) is a veterans service organization that offers a variety of programs, service and events for wounded veterans of the military actions following the events of September 11, 2001. It operates as a nonprofit organization with a mission to "honor and empower Wounded Warriors" of the United States Armed Forces, as well as provide services and programs for the family members of its veterans.
