Get your green on for annual Shamrock Shuffle 5K


TROY — St. Patrick School alumni are hosting the ninth annual Shamrock Shuffle 5K race on Saturday, March 18.

The race course then turns around and finishes back at the stadium. At the conclusion of the race, the St. Patrick’s Day festivities continue as race participants and families are treated to the Kegs and Eggs Breakfast at the St. Patrick Church undercroft.
