Event organizers of the Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle announced an exciting addition to race weekend: a one-mile event to take place on Saturday, March 23. With entries limited to the first 1,000 to register, the Mile will welcome runners of all abilities – from the next generation of shufflers to local elites – to weave their way through Grant Park.
“There is something iconic and classic about the mile that speaks to runners of every generation,” said Pinkowski. “We are thrilled to be adding this event to Chicago’s running landscape as another way we can all kick off the running season and welcome even more runners into the community.”
Registration for the Mile is now open and will close once the event has reached its 1,000- person capacity. The race will feature four waves that highlight Chicago’s diverse running community: recreational, competitive masters, competitive, and elite.
