Thurday is the deadline to pre-register for the 2018 Shamrock Run 5K/10K, a race in Gallatin on March 10 benefiting local teachers.
Those who register, while supplies last, get a limited edition, long-sleeve, moisture-wicking race shirt, and the first 700 participants to cross the finish line will get a race medal.
Participants will gather at the Calvin Short Football Field, 695 E Main St. Gallatin TN 37066. The run will wind through Historic Downtown Gallatin, and runners are urged to dress up in their most creative St. Patrick’s Day attire. The race will raise money for grants which will be awarded to Gallatin teachers to fund innovative educational programs.
This primarily flat course is great for runners and walkers of all ages and ability.
The 10K participants will run the 5K course twice, and have 90 minutes to complete the race. Participants in the 5K will be grouped by estimated completion time and have 60 minutes to finish.
Prizes will be awarded to top finishers male and female, and awards will be given for the best St. Patrick’s Day costume and the most team spirit.
