As you probably know, registration is closed for the March 21 Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle, the big 8K that gets the season rolling in the Windy City. It will be crowded out there with 36,000 registered runners, meaning 29,000 or 30,000 might actually show up. If you aren't signed up and want to be, you can doit via a charity. Here's how, taken from the race newsletter:
Entry into the 2010 Shamrock Shuffle 8K can still be obtained through our official charity program. If you are interested in running for charity . . . you can run on behalf of the American Cancer Society, American Red Cross of Greater Chicago, The Chicago Diabetes Project, Imerman Angels, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society – Team In Training, or Team World Vision. These charity programs are building fundraising teams for this year’s race. Each group has a limited number of entries that are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
