Some VERY important announcements to make about the race.
We regret to inform you that we have been dealt a very serious decision to make by the city and this is out of our control. Las Olas Blvd is under some very heavy construction and is not safe for any sort of run to take place. There is a water main being installed and there is 8-10 foot holes dug on the road. Due to the amount of people in this event, it is not safe for us to use Las Olas Blvd. Our number one concern is the safety of you, the participant, and we want to make sure your experience is nothing other than fantastic. With that said, we have attempted every possible way to re-route the course in order to keep the 4 mile distance. All possible options to reroute the 4 mile course were not approved by the city and police due to major traffic flow implications and disturbing residential traffic. With a heavy heart we have decided for the 2018 Shamrock Run that the distance will have to be a 5K. This is not what we wanted and we have tried to wait until the last minute and even fought till the very end with the powers that be. It was either make the event a 5K or not have it at all. We promise that 2019 we will be back in full force and the 4 mile distance will be back better than ever. Thank you for your continued support of this event and we can't wait to Shamrock with you at the start line on Saturday.
