Important Information about the 2018 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.
