The Shamrock Run had the luck of the Irish this year and started on the warmest Parade Day in years. Ben Snodgrass of Vestal HS led the way finishing in 4:50 on the uphill, windy course. He was closely followed by Open Men's Division winner Earl Steinbrecher, who also finished in under five minutes. On the women's side Erica Riecke led the Open Women in 5:47, and Becky Broderick won the HS division. Many thanks to George Joseph for his help timing the race and the support from Suzanne, Grace, Byron, and the rest of the TCRC!
