EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's Shamrock Shuffle 5K fun run/walk will begin at 10 a.m. March 10 at the McPhee Physical Education Center on upper campus.

The registration fee is $15 in advance or $20 the day of the event. Team registration is $20 per member.

Teams of six or more must register by Feb. 28. Team participants will receive a long-sleeved T-shirt with their team's name on the back. Individuals who register by Feb. 28 will receive a Shamrock Shuffle 2012 short-sleeved T-shirt. Individuals may register until 9 a.m. the day of the race, but are not guaranteed a shirt after Feb. 28.

A raffle will be held in conjunction with the run/walk, with prizes that include a genuine Livestrong (Lance Armstrong) Spin Bike, Country Jam USA tickets and $200 in Chamber Bucks. The drawing will be held at 11 a.m. March 10; the winner need not be present. Tickets — one for $5, three for $10 or 10 for $20 — may be purchased at the University Recreation & Sport Facilities Hilltop Center office in advance or on the day of the event.

University Recreation & Sport Facilities hosts the annual event, with all proceeds going to the Wisconsin Youth Success Program, a five-week summer sports camp for youth aged 10-16 from economically disadvantaged families. The program teaches sports skills and competition, and helps educate participants in the areas of math and science, health and nutrition, careers and the importance of education.

Printable registration materials are available online.
