Shamrock N Roll Run - 19 days and filling quickly!

As March nears, it's time to start the racing season!  Yes, even in Michigan!  One of the first races of the year is the ShamRock N Roll Run in Downtown Plymouth Michigan on March 18th.  I will be there and I want you to join me!  Who wouldn't want to race in a downtown like this?
Kellogg Park
The ShamRock N Roll Run is coming in only 19 days! 19 days!!!!!  There's going to be lots of fun at this race but you need to hurry.  There is only 650 spots left for the 10k, they're going to go fast, and you know you want one of these; a sweet medal:
You will also get one of these, an awesome Tech shirt....and who doesn't want one of these to run in all summer long?  I'm planning on that four leaf clover giving me a little luck this season for racing.

How do you get one?  Join me in the 10k race(for both the medal and shirt) or join the 5k race or one mile(for the shirt) of the ShamRock N Roll Run on March 18th.  I can't believe racing season is already here.  Has winter gone by quick or what?  Anyway......

Here's some more details you should know about this race so you don't miss out:

  • Expect to have lots of company - they are expecting over 3,100 participants for this inaugural race.  Now I know many of you worry about inaugural races but Kona Running Company has years of experience and it will surely be a well organized race.
  • The City of Plymouth has committed to plow and salt the streets should by chance we have a snow or ice storm that weekend so this race will NOT be cancelled!  A big plus knowing you will be racing that day, regardless of weather, and it will be safe running.  Now that is what I call a committed City and race director!
  • The Circus tent in Kellogg Park(at the start and finish area) will have new registration and packet pick up, volunteer check-in plus the age group awards and the rock n roll concert by The Remix Band which begins at 9:05am!  This means if it's cold, at least you won't be.
  • Want a preview of the band? - Click HERE to hear some samples of their songs!  Great band!
Here's the layout of the start and finish lines again in Kellogg park.  It really is well planned to allow for the number of participants expected:

Also, these are the awesome sponsors that are helping with this race.  Of course, it could not be done without them so their support is really important as with any race.
Want more details, check it out:

Go to for more information and to register for the race.  I want to see all you Michigan runners at this race.  Hurry so you don't miss out on.  Plus, take advantage of lower prices and sign up before 3/17 but I would not wait that long - it's likely to be sold out by then.

Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!


  1. Just wondering about parking. It looks like area 1 and area 2 will not be blocked in by the race? I would have to get going soon after finishing the 10K.

    1. Parking should not be an issue. The race director has done races in Plymouth before. Also, I ran a race there for the Wicked Halloween race last October and I parked about 2 blocks away and was able to leave quickly as well and I parked in the middle of the 10k route. There is police support so no worries!
