HI Runners, we have not forgotten about getting those shirts and medals to you. We were hoping to be able to have another pick up option so we did not have to mail 400 packages. Stay tuned for some options coming up!

Dear Runners,

Thank you for your patience over the past few weeks as we have worked closely with County Government officials and our race partners to decide the best course of action for the 6th Annual Bluemont Shamrock Race.

Unfortunately it does not look feasible for us to reschedule at this time. In the coming weeks, once things are clear we will email and post a date and time for packet pick up. You will be able to pick up your race t-shirt, medal and sponsor swag bag. If you are unable to pick it up we would be happy to mail it to you.

As many of you racers know, The Bluemont Community Center Advisory Board has already incurred all the costs, for shirts, medals, race coordination, permits, and other race necessities to put on this event for 500 people. It would be detrimental and virtually impossible for us to offer a refund.

We hope you understand that the small amount of money made over and above the expenses for this race goes to offering tuition assistance and enrichment programs to students and citizens that attend the Bluemont Community Center.

We will offer all 2020 registrants a discount code to register for next year’s 5k or 10k at %50 off.

Thank you. Hope to see you at a race soon!

Did you put on your shirt and run this morning. It is a great day for running. Post your picture!

RACE POSTPONED
Thank you for your patience over the past few days as we have worked closely with County Government officials to decide the best course of action for the 6th Annual Bluemont Shamrock Race. This certainly is uncharted territory for everyone in our community.

It is our highest priority to keep our community safe. It is with the recommendation of the local officials that we have decided to postpone the race.
We will work with Potomac River Running, Great Country Farms and Dirt Farm Brewing to secure a date and get back to you as soon as we can.

**If you picked up your bib last night at PRR, Please hold on to it for the rescheduled race. if you have not picked up a packet please wait for the new packet pick up dates.

03/12/2020

We are at PRR for Packet pick up till 7pm!

03/12/2020

We are taking all concerns into account as a part of the large decision by the County of Loudoun on the course of action for the 6th Annual Bluemont Shamrock Race.

We will communicate a decision about canceling, rescheduling or refunding very soon. Until that time we ask that you hold all requests.

Thank you!

Beautiful day at the Start/finish line at Great Country Farms. And the runner support is looking good too!

Sleep well, runners! We found the first half of this Irish blessing to be pretty appropriate for tomorrow’s race. Cut it off at rain falling softly on your fields because that’s just a big no for tomorrow.

One more sleep until race day and we are loving this sunny forecast!

Still rocked your adorable race shirt this morning & got in my 5k with friends from The Algonkian Running Club! Thank you for choosing to postpone the race vs. cancel it. I'm pregnant with a wee lass due 7/16, but if I'm able I'm looking forward to running your beautiful course again & seeing everyone on the rescheduled date. Slainte!🍀🍻😊
Please let me know if anyone cannot make the run. I would love a bib since they're sold out
Just one week until the 2019 Middleburg HEALth Fair & 5K and the forecast looks amazing! 🌞 There’s still time to sign up for the 5K, Dog Dash or walk at https://runsignup.com/Race/VA/Middleburg/Middleburg5K - 🏃🏻‍♀️🏃🏻‍♂️🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏼‍♂️🐩
Now that the wonderful Bluemont Shamrock 5K has taken place, if you’re looking for another delightful local 5K, join us in Middleburg on Saturday March 30th at 8:00 a.m. for the 2019 Middleburg 5K through the treelined streets of town and the grounds of the Salamander Resort. Sign up at heal.middleburg.com and we hope to see you!!
Looking for two bibs if anyone has extras or wants to transfer.
Are there details on anything going on post-race over at Dirt Farm? Right now, all the event webpage says is "We are still discussing details..."
I'm registered and can no longer get off work can my entry be transferred to someone else
Hoping a shorter video makes it less choppy/grainy.
Here is a second video from the 5k/10k 🍀
This was a great race, thanks. I am glad you are making the change to award the overall women's top 3 runners. The only other thing I would change is I think the 10K was a bit long. From the 3 mile mark to the turn around was more than .11 But I love that course.
what time is packet pick up there are different times listed on the bluemont page, and the registration email
Almost time to get those race shoes laced up. For all the new comers, here is the race map. 5k turns around 1/2 way out.
