The Race Has Been Converted To A Virtual Run
Register Your Teen or Child In Our Virtual Run
Due to recent developments regarding COVID-19 and as a precautionary measure, the 2020 Marietta PAL Shamrock Shuffle will now be a virtual-only event.
As a result, we will not be gathering to run together on Saturday, March 14. The Marietta Police Athletic League extends our sincere thanks to our amazing Sponsors, Vendors, Partners and Race participants for your understanding and continued support! In lieu of hosting the event on Saturday, the virtual-only race will still allow participants to receive their, official participant shirt and swag bag at a later date when it’s been determined safe to meet.
We will provide additional details as they become available.
Thank you for your patience! Please stay safe and healthy.
We will be back in 2021 to celebrate our 5th anniversary, hopefully as a PHYSICAL and VIRTUAL RUN. Please help us continue to thanks and support our amazing sponsors.
We look forward to seeing you in 2021. Meanwhile, if you have any questions feel free to contact us.
