2021 Virtual Shamrock 5K

Fri March 19 - Sun March 21 RaceJoy Ready

Hosted by Kennesaw State University - Eta Omega Chapter of Kappa Delta Sorority and Greater Atlanta Day Alumnae Chapter

Benefitting Prevent Child Abuse America and Wellspring Living

Due to the current pandemic and rise in cases of COVID-19 we have elected to go VIRTUAL this year! We want to bring the running community back together, virtually for now. We will miss seeing all of your smiling faces in real life and until that can safely happen again, we want to see your photos and watch your miles accumulate. We are bringing to you a virtual 5K to get out and stay fit while social distancing.

On the weekend of March 19-21, 2021, Kappa Delta Sorority at Kennesaw State University Eta Omega and Greater Atlanta Day Alumnae Chapter will host its 9th Annual Shamrock 5K to raise money for Wellspring Living in Atlanta and Prevent Child Abuse America. Twenty percent of the proceeds will go towards our national philanthropy Prevent Child Abuse America. Prevent Child Abuse America has the mission to prevent child abuse and neglect in our nation’s children by providing services and programs that focus on an array of steps that will lead to a child growing and developing in a healthy successful way. The remaining eighty percent of the proceeds will go towards our local philanthropy: Wellspring Living. Wellspring Living has a mission to transform the lives of those who are at risk or victimized by sexual exploitation. Wellspring Living serves sex-trafficking survivors and victims of childhood sexual abuse and exploitation through community-based programs that give girls and young women the chance to transform their lives and gain the opportunity to live and dream again. Eta Omega needs your help in making this year's Shamrock 5k a great success again! We cannot wait to see you again when it is safe at our Annual Shamrock 5k. Until then, we thank you for your support always!


1st Place, 2nd Place, and 3rd Place Male and Female!  Winners will be announced on Sunday, March 21st! Each of the 6 winners will receive a medal.

T-Shirts not guaranteed if registering after March 1st!
