Run, Walk or Stroll at the Junior League of Atlanta's 15th Annual Shamrock N' Roll

1,500 Runners and Walkers Expected at Atlantic Station

ATLANTA, Atlantic Station – An Atlanta St. Patrick's Day tradition will return to Atlantic Station this weekend. Runners and walkers are set to flood the streets of the Midtown development on Saturday, March 16, 2019 for The Junior League of Atlanta, Inc.'s (JLA) 15th Annual Shamrock ‘N Roll Road Race.

"We’re excited to be celebrating the 15th anniversary of the Shamrock 'N Roll Road race this year," said Carla C. Smith, President of the Junior League of Atlanta. "What better way to kick off spring in Atlanta than by supporting our mission of serving the Atlanta community than with a family-friendly party, fitness, and more than a few green tutus?"

Shamrock 'N Roll's Peachtree Road Race qualifier course takes runners, walkers, strollers and even a few dogs through scenic areas in and around Atlantic Station. Participants will begin at 17th Street, stride through the heart of West Midtown and return to 18th Street, where they will be greeted with a breathtaking view of Midtown and Downtown Atlanta while crossing the finish line.

The fun begins at 8:30 a.m. with the 5K and 10K, and a Kids Fun Run will follow at 10:00 a.m. The morning concludes with the Family Fun Festival featuring an awards ceremony, music and fun in the vendor village. Medals are awarded for the first through third-place finishers of the race in each age group, with special prizes for the top finishers in the team, stroller, and dog groups. Awards will also be given to the most festive individual, team, stroller, and dog.

All proceeds from the Shamrock 'N Roll Road Race are used to support the JLA's mission of promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. The 15th Annual Shamrock 'N Roll Road Race is presented by Northside Hospital. Special thanks to Neurosport Physical Therapy, Garrett Popcorn Shops, West Stride and the CW69 for their support.

Registration is available in-person at West Stride on March 14 and March 15, as well as race day at Atlantic Station! For more information about the event and how to get involved, visit www.shamrocknroll.org.
