Shamrockin run draws 62 runners

Pacelli Catholic Schools combined two of the School’s annual events into one on Saturday, September 19 .

The sixth Annual Shamrockin’ Run was combined with Pacelli’s one-mile Walkathon.

“It was fun for Pacelli to put on an event for the whole community to take part in and enjoy, especially in these unusual times”, said Ryan Bickler, Run Committee Chair.

Special precautions were evident at the event, with everything being outside, masks being worn right up to race time, lots of hand sanitizer and conscious social distancing. The usual post-race awards ceremony was not held, with the first three runners in each flight getting their medals by mail.
