Money from the race is donated to the Boys & Girls Club of Dane County. To date, hundreds of thousands of dollars have been donated by The Madison Shamrock Shuffle's proceeds.

Important Information about the 2014 Madison Shamrock Shuffle:

  • The race is capped at 5,000 runners. When we reach that number, we will no longer take any more entries.
  • Strollers are allowed. Please line up at the starting line on the sides and towards the back. No dogs (or any other animal, for that matter) are allowed on the course. It's not because we don't like your dog, it's because insurance guys get cagey about it.
  • You can walk the 5K/10K if you wish, but keep in mind that the course is completely shut down at 12Noon.
  • A week leading up to the race, we like to put together a Madison Shamrock Shuffle Runner Info Packet that helps you know all you need to know. Check back and we'll make it available on this page of our site.
  • We have laid out our courses and they are under the city's/university's review process. You can view them here by clicking on the link: 5K Course, 10K Course and 2 Mile Walk.
