The Newtown Shamrock Shuffle 5k is an awesome race, fun course, and easily run. The Green Parrot hosts this fun event and afterparty. The course is smooth, scenic, and great for all running types. I wasn't planning on hitting any PR's, but the course is an easy run perfect to really go all out. The beginning of the race is a tad congested, but once you get moving things open up.
