2014 marks the 35th year of the Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle 8k. As the unofficial kick off to the running season here in Chicago, this race takes place on Sunday, March 30th. On this day, 40,000 runners will take to the streets of Chicago to run the nearly 5-mile course.
The course runs through the heart of downtown, starting and finishing in Grant Park, and is very flat, perfect for setting a personal record. View the course map here.
Registration is still open until the 40,000 capacity mark is reach (which it does every year).
