Registering on-line is the easiest way to ensure your spot in the ShamRock ‘n Run and help support your favorite PYLUSD school by designating it as the recipient of the $5.00 Registration Drive option of your registration fee.  If you are not affliated with a school, consider our REACH “Kids in Need” fund and your donation will go to a special program to help low income students.


This is a timed 5K run on a USATF certified course.  All 5K participants may cool down in our exclusive Leprechaun Lounge area with complimentary food and refreshment samples from local community restaurants.  Extra hungry? You may also purchase a pancake breakfast for just $3.00 per plate at the time of registration.


Just over a 1 mile run/walk through Yorba Regional Park is a scenic course on a paved surface that has been designed for full participant enjoyment! Each 2K Runner registration includes a complimentary Pancake Breakfast that opens at 7:00am.

All other runners and guest can purchase the same breakfast for a special event price of $3.00 per plate.


Golden State Pancake Breakfast with Kiwanis of Placentia opens at 7:00am. Breakfasts can be paid for during registration process. NOTE: A Pancake Breakfast is INCLUDED in each 2K Registration. Extra Breakfasts may be purchased for just $3.00.

Enjoy APC Entertainment, Music, Stage Entertainment, Fun Kid's Zone games and crafts, St Paddy's Costume Contest and Informative Community Partner Expo with local businesses supporting our event. All in a beautiful park setting.

Dress for the occasion because we'll be looking for the Best “Luck of the Irish” Costume Contest Winner.  Finally, be sure to stop by our ShamRock ‘n Run Photo Booth for your souvenir photo of the day.


We are expecting a large number of attendees and advise on planning for early arrival, carpooling and/or if local, drop off and pickups.  Parking instructions and map will be posted prior at reach4pylusd.org prior to Early Packet Pick-Up date. Only participants who come by during Early Packet Pick-Up dates will receive a parking pass for Yorba Regional Park.


While strollers, wheelchairs and service dogs are permitted, for guest safety, we ask these groups to start at the back of the lineup for your race.  Bikes, rollerblades, and skateboards are not allowed in the Expo areas or race course at any time.  All other dogs must be on a leash and owners are responsible for picking up after their pets (per park regulations).


The ShamRock ‘n Run event will be held rain or shine.  However, safety is of the utmost concern.  In the event that weather conditions pose a threat, the race and/or government officials reserve the right to postpone or cancel the event or alter the course as deemed necessary.  Unfortunately, should this occur, registration fees cannot be refunded if unsafe weather cancels the race.


Booth space is still available for community partners and school booster organizations. QUESTONS? Contact us via email - [email protected]
