Shamrock Shuffle set for Saturday in Ardmore

— Green will be the color du jour in Ardmore with the town’s annual Shamrock Shuffle 5K set for Saturday.

The chip-timed 5K will begin at 8 a.m. at First Baptist Church and the 1-mile fun run/walk is scheduled to start at 9:15.

With St. Patrick’s Day on Monday, race participants will be turned out in holiday garb and green-colored garments and Irish food, vendors and music will be part of the race festivities.

The preregistration closing date for the 5K is today. There is no race day registration for the 5K but people may register for the fun run on Saturday morning.

Both races cost $30, with proceeds this year benefiting the Ardmore Public Library, Boys & Girls Club of Ardmore and Christians Helping Others.

Race packet pickup is today from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at Fleet Feet in Huntsville and 3-7 p.m. at First National Bank in Ardmore. Packets also will be available at 7 a.m. Saturday at the church, located at 26670 Fifth St.
