Sixteenth Annual ShamRock Run
Date: March 12, 2022
Location: Newnan Court Square
The 15th Annual ShamRock Run is a charity run benefitting our 2021-2022 Grant Recipient, 180 Degree Farm which was established in 2009 as a working farm, dedicated to feeding cancer patients organic, nutrient dense foods. Their primary focus is to provide free food through their Food Fight Program, enabling cancer patients access to free organic fruits, veggies, eggs and more. They teach classes to the community to discuss the dangers in our current food system and how to source clean, chemical free, nutrient dense food. Project Season Extension Greenhouse is the initiative for the 2021-2022 grant. 180 Degree Farm is requesting a new heated greenhouse to extend their growing process across all four seasons, which would provide year-round food for their cancer patients.
The 10K course is for competitive runners, the 5K and Leprechaun Dash for the whole family. The 5K and 10K race routes are both ( NEW) USATF certified courses. The Leprechaun Dash will be 2 laps around the Courthouse Square. Walking and strollers are welcome for the 5K and the Leprechaun Dash. Orion Racing will professionally manage the finish line and use RFID chip timing to ensure the most accurate finish times possible. A flat screen TV will be on site to provide a live results feed. Results will be emailed to participants at the end of the race.
