RUNNERS GET YOUR GREEN ON!  Run, Dance, Sing, and more!

Scottish bagpiping and drumming will fill the air as you lace up for the Inaugural NM ShamRock ‘N Roll.  Whether you’re an experienced runner looking to get a 5k under your belt in March or a newbie, NM ShamRock ‘N Roll will have you feeling the luck o’ the Irish.  The only requirements: sneakers and lots of green garb. You won’t even have to break a sweat in our All Fun – No Run Zero K (0.0), benefitting the International Balloon Museum Foundation.  Everyone Wins in the less-than-strenuous 0.0K race starting (and ending) at 2:00pm.  Register online now.

Post-race festivities include plenty of food and drinks to refuel with. Participants will "recover" with some adult beverages provided by O’Niell’s. (Proper ID Required) 

The Inaugural NM ShamRock ‘N Roll is being held during the 3rd Annual NM ShamRock Fest, at the Albuquerque Balloon Museum, on March 11 from 11am to 6pm.  As a registered NM ShamRock ‘N Roll participant you will receive one free admission to this event.  Additional tickets for family and friends are required.  Tickets may be purchased at the event, at packet pick up, or by clicking here.
