BCPS 5k and Color Fun Run

posted Feb 20, 2017, 5:46 AM by East Burke High School
Burke County Public Schools is preparing for our first “Shamrock Shuffle 5K and Color Me Green 1-Mile Fun Run on Saturday, March, 18, 2017. This 5k and fun run is a fundraiser with proceeds going to the Burke Education Foundation Inc.

The 5k will be a timed event and the 1-mile fun run will be a color event. In honor of St. Patrick's Day, fun run participants are encouraged to dress up in their favorite leprechaun getup and should come prepared to be turned green.  

We are asking local business owners to sponsor the race. If you are interested in sponsoring the race, please click on the link 5K Sponsorship

A registration form for runners also is attached or you can register online here. There's a spot on the form to list "School Affiliation." Encourage runners you know to list your school (even if they are a community member with no affiliation with your school) because the school with the most representatives at the event will receive $500. 

Come out and participate in and bring your friends and family to the Shamrock Shuffle. You don't want to miss this fun event as we shuffle along the Greenway and support education in Burke County.
