Literally running into spring just got better.
The first weekend of the season and the unofficial start to outdoor running season in Chicago collide this weekend with the Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle 8K.
Registration for the popular Chicago race and its new one-mile run is still open this week. (Register here)
Thousands of runners will cross the finish line Sunday and you can be one of them.
The first wave of runners steps off at 8:30 a.m. with a second wave beginning at 9 a.m.
The mile run is set to take place on Saturday. There's also a two-mile walking event Sunday for those looking to ease their way into the season.
This year's Shamrock Shuffle, which marks the 40th anniversary of the popular race, will once again take runners on a route through downtown Chicago, starting and ending in Grant Park. The shuffle is known as the unofficial kickoff to outdoor running season in Chicago.
