The Hilton Head Shamrock 5K Run is this Saturday, March 15 at 8 am. People of all ages will be hitting the streets of Hilton Head Island for the 19th Annual Hilton Head Shamrock Run. The race will start in front of New York City Pizza at Heritage Plaza, and the course will run down Pope Avenue, onto North Forest Beach Drive, and back onto Lagoon Road to finish inside Coligny Plaza. The flat and fast course is perfect for both walkers and runners. A commemorative Shamrock Run t-shirt and a string of St. Patrick’s Day Party beads will be handed out to the first 400 participants. There will also be a fun “Beat the Leprechaun” competition going on during the race. Every runner who beats the Hilton Head Leprechaun to the finish line will receive a special Shamrock Run gift.
