The Shamrock Run has Partnered with Green Buffalo Runner to make the 41st annual run, the most sustainable in its history.  

  

We are asking all runners to pick up and properly dispose of one piece of trash before, during or after the race.

  • In the U.S. more than 64 million people went running last year, and 110 million walked for fitness.  Imagine the impact if every individual committed to picking up a single piece of trash every time they ventured outdoors.


  • We encourage all participants to car pool to the race.

  • Bring your own water bottle if possible. If not, recyclable water bottles are available and have replaced plastic cups at all water stations.

  • Shamrock volunteers will also make sure that all post-race trash is collected and disposed of in a responsible manner.

History

Green Buffalo Runner began in 2010.  The Green Buffalo symbolizes one of the first environmental success stories in our nation’s history. The most prominent mammal to ever roam the  U.S., the American Bison (aka Buffalo) numbered 40 million in 1800 and less than 100 years later, as few as 600 remained. Thanks to the conservation efforts of the era, the trend was reversed, ultimately preserving these majestic animals.
