Madison gears up for annual Shamrock Shuffle race

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- We are just about a week away from St. Patrick's Day.  People are getting ready for Madison's festivities, including the Shamrock Shuffle. 

You can kick off your Irish celebrations with a 5K, 10K or two mile walk through downtown Madison and the UW Madison campus Sunday, March 13 at 10:00 a.m.  There will be bagpipers, an appearance from St. Patrick and a post race party at State Street Brats. 

Wednesday, March 9 is the last day for online registration.  You have until 11:59 p.m. to sign up on the Shamrock Shuffle website.  The race will be capped at 5,000 participants. 

Money raised from the Shamrock Shuffle benefits the Boys & Girls Club of Dane County.  Organizers say they've raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the organization since the event started.
