Join us for an extraordinary celebration of St. Patrick's Day and a heartfelt reflection on our incredible 10-year journey!

The 10th annual Shamrock 'N Run is a lively 5k Run/Walk benefit race hosted by the PHN Charitable Foundation. Whether you're a seasoned runner or just looking for a lively stroll, there's something for everyone at the Shamrock 'N Run! We invite you to be part of the festivities at LTI’s Sharon location, 200 Sterling Avenue, Sharon, PA, on March 9, 2024, for an experience you won’t want to miss!


Picture yourself starting the spirited race at LTI on Connelly Boulevard, winding through the charming streets of downtown Sharon. The exhilarating journey leads you back to LTI for a post-race celebration, featuring the prestigious "Oranges and Greens Breakfast of Champions" buffet, live performances by the talented Burke School of Irish Dancing, and the captivating tunes of Bagpiper Ross Williams.

Here's the twist | The fastest 5 scores from each team will be considered, and the team with the overall best score upon crossing the finish line will be crowned our Team Winner. Plus, don't forget, that your individual score is not only eligible for the top finishers in all categories but also contributes to the men's, women's, and non-binary overall rankings.


But that's not all! | Teams have a shot at some fantastic prizes. Get your creative juices flowing for the chance to win the Most Creative Team Name award. Additionally, if your team rallies the most participants, you could be the proud recipient of the Team with the Most Participants prize.
