Sham-Rock 5K Race and Shindig Party

Annual Sham-Rock 5K Race and Shindig Saturday, March 16, 2019 at 9:00AM – 3:00PM Hosted by Dixon Family YMCA 110 N Galena Ave, Dixon, IL The 5th Annual Sham-Rock Shuffle is back and better than ever. We are kicking off the race season with an improved race path and FREE after party event in the Bean Blossom parking area. The event is family friendly and will include music by local musicians, children’s games and activities, local merchant vendors, food vendors and much more! The event will lead right into the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade ensuring a great family fun day in picturesque downtown Dixon! On March 16, 2019, we are organizing our fifth annual Sham-Rock 5K and Kids Fun Run. This event was started in 2015 as a fundraiser for the Dixon Family YMCA Strong Kids Campaign. Annually more than 300 runners and spectators participate. In 2019, the YMCA Program staff elected to add an outdoor celebration. At the conclusion of the race, runners, spectators, and the public are invited to enjoy live music, games, contests, food and drink in the Bean Blossom Parking Lot which sits in the center of town overlooking the Rock River. The Bean Blossom is known as the site of many large-scale city events like the annual Petunia Fest.
