Shamrock’n the Harbor @ 6 Cushman Trail
Mar 16 @ 8:00 am – 1:00 pm

Don your best Irish and join in Shamrock’n the Harbor. The family-friendly run/walk event encourages all ages to get seriously Irish. Run, walk, or skip along your Shamrock’n journey!

The 5k and 12k routes take runners, walkers and strollers, o’er the hills, dales, streets and trails of our greater Gig Harbor and Key Peninsula region. Shamrock’n the Harbor benefits the Gig Harbor Senior Center and is a great excuse to get outside while helping a great cause.
