“Ten years of hosting the Shamrock Shuffle has been such a fun family activity. We have had such an overwhelming show of support from the community, St. Patrick Church, and school families and staff, that we surpassed our registration totals from last year,” says Chuck Karnehm, committee leader of the Alumni & Friends Organization, in the release. “Our sponsors, some supporting us for 10 years, have enabled us to have a successful, fun race.”

Following the race, participants will be routed to the St. Patrick Church undercroft (basement) at 409 E. Main St., Troy, for a celebration including door prizes, awards, and the much anticipated, Kegs & Eggs breakfast (beer served to 21 years and older). Breakfast for non-racers will be $5. As always, the St. Patrick’s Softball team will be cooking breakfast. Rankings will be tracked and announced by Can’t Stop Running, and awards will be distributed to the top three in each age/gender category and overall.

Race proceeds support the St. Patrick Catholic Elementary School Alumni & Friends Fund, which offsets students’ tuition fees and provides valuable classroom equipment and resources. Last year the Alumni & Friends were able to award 13 scholarships to St. Patrick School families.
