CHICAGO - Packet pick-up began Friday for the annual Shamrock Shuffle, which is taking place downtown this weekend.
Like many events, the run has been on a 2-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Its triumphant return includes a new course, which will take participants along the Chicago River in what's thought of as the official kick-off to running season in Chicago, leading up to the Chicago Marathon.
The 2-mile walk is at capacity, but registration is still open for the 8K.
Masks and proof of vaccination will not be required this weekend.
