Pet Parade

The Shamrock Shuffle 3K Pet Parade is back! We're talking a full-on procession of adorable, costume-wearing, four-legged shufflers!  The pet parade lineup will take place following the race at 8:40 a.m., prior to our awards ceremony. Look for the Lexington Habitat mascot, HabiCat, at the finish line on March 16 to be directed to the designated pet parade area. There is no need to sign up in advance, there is no charge to join in and all participating pets will be entered to win a Pet Prize Package from Bluegrass Barkery valued at $100- it’s a win-win!


Tip for those planning to shuffle with their four-legged friend: There is no additional fee to bring your dog to walk or run in the Shamrock Shuffle 3K with you! We just ask that you start the race in the section marked “Stroller/Walker” toward the back of the start. You will be chip timed so this will not affect your race results.

Costume Contest

We encourage our participants to dress up for the race in their best green, Irish or shamrock themed costumes. We've seen some great ones over the years! There will be a contest for the best costume following the race at the Finish Line Party under the shelter at the Robert F. Stephens Courthouse Plaza. Please remember to choose a costume that allows for free movement without tripping or endangering yourself or other runners around you.
