St. Clare Walker Middle School
St. Clare Walker Middle School in Locust Hill will host a Shamrock Shuffle 5K & Leprechaun Fun Run on Saturday, March 15. Both the Leprechaun Fun Run, which is a one-mile kids’ run, and the Shamrock Shuffle, a 3.1-mile race, will begin in the bus loop at the school and continue down Philpot Road past Middlesex Elementary for an out-and-back course. The fun run starts at 8:30 a.m., and the 5K starts at 9 a.m.
Both events are intended to emphasize personal fitness and fun in the community and are available to runners and walkers of all ages and abilities.
The entry fee for the Leprechaun Fun Run is $15, and the Shamrock Shuffle fee is $25 for those who register before Saturday, March 1. After March 1, the price increases to $30 for the 5K. This is an extension from the initial flyer sent home with students. Registration before March 9 guarantees an event T-shirt.
All proceeds raised will benefit students by funding student activity programs, classroom materials, and resources.
Participants are encouraged to register online through the Run Signup website. Anyone interested in obtaining a paper registration form may call the school at 758-2561.
