Challenge yourself to our brand new King Neptune Challenge. King Neptune Challenge participants will run the TowneBank Shamrock 8k on Saturday, March 21st, and then both the Anthem Half Marathon and the Yuengling Shamrock Marathon on Sunday, March 22nd. All King Neptune Challengers will receive a total of six medals during the Yuengling Shamrock Marathon Weekend!
