San Jose Shamrock Remote Runner

MARCH 10 @ 11:00AM UPDATE: 

The Virtual Run & Resiliency

Our mission at Run Local Events is to both ‘inspire people to move’ and to ‘improve local communities.’ With this in mind, we have pivoted to make the 2020 San Jose Shamrock Run a virtual event. We have switched all registered participants to virtual runners and will mail everyone a finisher medal, t-shirt, and race bib. Runners can expect to receive this by the end of next week. 

***Yes, Virtual Runners count toward all of our Run Local Series and Challenges!

As a Virtual Runner, you can complete the race distance on the route, day and time of your choosing. No official timing is necessary for Virtual Runners, but as you participate virtually over the coming days on your own (or as a small run group), please share your swag, stories, and stoke with #SJSHAMROCKRUN. And it’s OK to try and have some fun too as we all sort through this unprecedented issue.

We’ve also worked with our partners so all Virtual Runners receive:

  • Sports Basement: All runners receiving their Shamrock Run Bib can take them into Sports Basement and still enjoy their 20% off (28% for Basementeers!) the entire store.
  • O’Flaherty’s: For the month of March, bring your Bib in and enjoy a free Guinness!


Running, along with any physical and mental exercise, can be a powerful antidote to times of adversity by building personal strength and resilience. We encourage our runners to find safe ways to continue this practice while adhering to the
various recommendations put forth by public officials to stay healthy.
