The Wearin' of the Green 5K Shamrock Run Has Transitioned to a Virtual Race

UPDATE:  5/20/20

The Race is now a Virtual Race that will complete on June 13, 2020

Run Anywhere & Anytime Until June 13th

To preserve the health and safety of our supporters, sponsors, staff, volunteers, survivors, and board members we have decided to transition our race to a VIRTUAL RACE.

The virtual race format allows our participants to run wherever you want! Go to the park, run the treadmill, or in your neighborhood. This is also a fun way to get your family out of the house while you exercise social distancing. You must be registered to participate in the Virtual Race.  

If you have registered for the race, we have a Google Form to fill out once you have done your run/walk for the virtual race.  This is the link:

Note: If you don't have a google email account, you can send your name, age, gender, city, state, time and proof of time & distance to Bertha Lanthier with Cajun Timing at ( as she will be compiling the results for the Virtual Race.

We’ll be holding another packet pick-up on Thursday, June 11 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Friday, June 12 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Varsity Sports at 2055 Perkins Rd. There, you can collect your race t-shirt if you have not done so, and your finishers medal! Awards will still be given to the top 10 male and top 10 female finishers. Details about those awards will be given once the race is complete and times are posted.

Results will be posted online on June 14.

If you are an out-of-state runner, your medal and race t-shirt will be mailed to you at the address you registered with. If you have questions regarding your medal and t-shirt, please contact

We hope you and your families stay safe.

Thank you!
