Ever since we had to postpone this race in March due to COVID-19, much time and effort has been put into determining which school events are safe in order to have students return to school for in-person learning. With this goal in mind as well as the safety of our participants, volunteers and staff, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the Shamrock 5K/10K/Fun to our traditional time slot on March 13, 2021
Everyone who is entered and those that cancelled earlier will be deferred into the new date in the same race they entered previously. There is no need for further action.
All races start and finish at Asheville Catholic School.
The 5K and 10K will remain the same as the past three years, offering a fun and challenging run in the neighborhoods of North Asheville.
The Fun Course is a .4 mile course that goes to and around St. Eugene’s Catholic Church before returning to the school.
The race will utilize chip timing.
The chips are attached to the back of your race bib so don’t crinkle them. Please make sure your bib is visible on your front at all times, but especially when crossing the finish line.
We love dogs but this is not the place for them – either in the races or at the school or church. Anyone with a dog will be asked to remove them from the venue.
Limited parking is available at the Asheville Catholic School. Parking is also available at the following locations:
- St. Eugene Catholic Church (Culvern Street just past the school)
- Asbury Memorial Church (Beaverdam Road)
- Grace Episcopal Church (upper and lower lots off of Ottari Road)
- Steinmart shopping complex (across Merrimon Avenue)
- Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church (on Merrimon Avenue)
- Ira Jones Elementary School
- Surrounding neighborhood side streets.
Note: Please hide your valuables. None of these properties are responsible for stolen items or damage to your vehicles
Please do not park in the North Asheville Animal Hospital parking lot across from the school on Beaverdam as they are open for business that morning.
The Asheville Catholic School has a NO REFUND policy. Everyone who is entered and those that cancelled earlier will be deferred into the new date in the same race they entered previously. There is no need for further action.
