Elite For A Day

  • Home > 
  • Elite For A Day > 

The Yuengling Shamrock Marathon will select one lucky participant to be an Elite for a Day during the TowneBank Shamrock 8k on March 19, 2016! The participant will still run the 4.97 mile course, but will be given a head start based on his or her predicted finish time and past performances.  If that lucky participant can reach the finish line first, he or she will claim a $1,000 prize!  All other runners start at the regularly scheduled time.  Should someone in the field overtake our lucky participant and get to the finish line first, he or she will receive the $1,000 Challenge prize AND the 8k champion’s purse.
