Tipperary Hill Shamrock Run returns in person for its 17th year

The 17th annual Tipperary Hill Shamrock Race is back in person after a successful virtual event in 2021.

Janice McKenna is the president of the Tipperary Hill Neighborhood Association and she says many are looking forward to this year’s event.

“It seems like it’s been over two years since we’ve had an in-person race, so we’re excited, the neighborhood is excited, the sponsors are excited and it’s going to be awesome,” she said.

For so many runners, the Tipp Hill race is one of the biggest signs of spring and race director Eileen McAndrew Murray says many are eager and ready to get back to normal.

Former NewsChannel 9 presenter Dan Cummings is this year’s Grand Marshall. Dan is no stranger to the event. He participated as a runner on several occasions and hosted it for 15 years.

This year’s run will include a 4-mile run presented by Geddes Federal Savings and Coleman’s Fun Run for Kids. Registrants can choose from this year’s personalized t-shirt with a special “in memory of Peter Coleman” design on the sleeve or a beer glass to take home.

Runners and walkers are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item or cash donation when showing up at the Burnet Park Rink
