Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle runners who cross the finish line next month will leap into the outdoor running season with a golden start.
Organizers are celebrating the event's emergence from pandemic shutdowns, and they released a newly-designed medal fitting for the occasion.
The 2022 finisher’s medal drapes from a patterned band and is decked out in green with a shamrock sitting as the centerpiece. At the bottom, a “Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle” text is followed by the date of this year’s race.
The medal was unveiled Jan. 3 on social media to celebrate the first Monday of the year.

Participants also will receive a Nike shirt and a knit beanie sporting the same chevron plaid pattern found on the medal’s band.
Runners can rock the medal and the other gifts in the 8K and 2-Mile Walk on March 20. Registration information can be found here.
