Looking to run in the 2018 Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle 8K this year? We've got some great news for you, as a special flash sale is here!
The registration fee, normally $55, has been slashed to $39 on St. Patrick's Day, event organizers said, in honor of 39 years of Shuffling.
This year's run, scheduled for March 25, will once again take runners through downtown Chicago, starting and ending in Grant Park. Returning for its second year is the 2-mile lakefront walking course, which starts and finishes at the same spots as the 8K.

Carey Pinkowski, the race's executive director, will join runners this year for the first time since 1988 to help raise money for the American Cancer Society, one of the race's charitable partners.
Pinkowski finished in third place with a time 24:07 when he last ran. But don't be discouraged if you can't keep that pace; the minimum pace required is to finish the 8K in one hour and fifteen minutes.
More than 20,000 shufflers took to the streets for 2017's Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle.
