The Shamrock Shuffle was back on March 12 for its annual healthy and lucky run in Loma Colorado.
Every year, the Shamrock Shuffle takes place near the Aquatic Center and Rio Rancho High School.
It is a tiring course for some as part of the run is uphill and March tends to be windy. Despite that, a few individuals surprised Run Fit hosts, like one man who finished in third place for the four-miler while pushing a double stroller.
Many kept the event fun with green tutus and even a viking helmet. Bystanders also showed support for their prospective family and friends.
See the top three times for each category below.
