Come out for a day of fun and racing in the Pulaski County area as we celebrate St. Patrick's Day ..... Lake Cumberland Style !!! 

Yes, this year's race will be live-and-in-person .... with a few minor changes.

In order to observe proper social distancing, this year's race will have staggered start times.  Participants will choice their start time during the online registration process.  

Basically, we will have small groups taking off instead of all 700+ runners at the same time.

Because the race has professional chip timing, it will not matter when you race everyone will get a chip time based on exactly when they start and exactly when they finish. 

The Shamrock Shuffle welcomes participants of all ability levels, from runners who are beginning their annual running and fitness regimen to seasoned veterans. The course is a measured 5K race, and professional chip timing will be used to ensure race time accuracy.

Race participants will receive a commemorative t-shirt.

(Shirts will only be guaranteed for people who register before 3/05/2021 at 9PM)

The Pulaski County Shamrock Shuffle is organized by the Somerset-Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce.
