How often do you get to own the streets of Sacramento with more than 10,000 of your neighbors and friends? If you’re a runner, that opportunity comes once a year with the Shamrock’n Half Marathon. The half-marathon, along with Saturday’s 5/10k runs and Leprechaun Dash, is a fundraiser for the Triumph Cancer Foundation and Project FIT. Runners get the benefits of the camaraderie, bragging rights (and a cool medal to show off on Instagram) and a free beer at the end of the run. And of course, doing something healthy for a good cause. The Sunday race tends to sell out, so if you didn’t have a chance to sign up (or just aren’t a runner), come out to cheer on the runners with signs, high-fives and encouragement. It’s free, and you’re helping the runners reach their goal. 400 Ballpark Drive in West Sacramento, www.shamrocknhalf.com.
