Since 2012, the Shamrock Shuffle has offered folks an exhilarating 5k run to start their St. Patty’s Day. The race begins and ends in the historic 100 Block section of downtown Council Bluffs and operates along a nationally certified route.

Runners are encouraged to wear green. After the race, there will be an epic assortment of outdoor beer gardens, local outdoor food, and live music. There is also a virtual-run option this year.

There will be a limited number of “day-of” sign-ups, so make sure to sign up online beforehand. Plus, there are certain guidelines regarding COVID-19 you should know about before race day, approved by the City of Council Bluffs, Pottawattamie Health Department, and Precision Race Results. That said, if you do not feel well, please do not participate in the run.
