Attention runners! If you have registered before March 9th, our schedule has been altered to allow runners and walkers more time to complete the race. Participants can now run at any point on the 14th, and a Google form will be sent out for times submission. Simply submit your run times by the end of the day, and the winners of each age group and category will receive a medal! See the updated scheulde below.

Although we can't have the Shamrock 5k in-person this year, that does not mean that we can't get together virtually and run for the RCPD! We have several events planned to make distant runners feel like they are back home on campus. 

  • 11:00 a.m. ET ~ Pre-Run Stretch and Social

    • Get ready for your run or walk with some guided stretches, and get to know your fellow runners! This event will be held via a Zoom meeting using the Zoom app, with a link and instructions sent to the email you register for the run with.

  • 2:00 p.m. ET ~ Virtual Shamrock Webinar

    • Starting at 2:00, we will have a Q&A presentation with the wonderful staff at the RCPD. Join in to learn about their jobs and how they help so many MSU students.

    • Also making an appearance in this webinar is the MSU Irish Dance team, who will be putting on a fantastic performance for us as we celebrate the 5k!

    • To finish off our event, we will be pie-ing our E-Board members in the face (since the run falls on Pi day)! If the E-Board member is able to collect over $20 of donations, then they will be pie-d. 






















Links and further information will be sent out via email after 5k registration. If you registered before March 5, please know that our raffle unfortunately had to be canceled. 

T-shirt delivery and pickup:

  • For those of you that chose to purchase a t-shirt, unfortunately the t-shirts will not be available to be picked up or delivered until after the race. More information about when the t-shirts will be shipped and available will be sent out via email. 

As always, make sure to stay safe and follow Covid-19 guidelines as you run, walk, and roll!
