2016 Shamrock Shuffle in Chicago
The 8K took place in cold weather with several big names leading the field.
The 2016 Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle took place Sunday on the streets of Chicago. The 8K (4.97 miles) was a chilly one, but the race featured several big-name runners like Desiree Linden, Stephen Sambu and others (Dathan Ritzenhein was entered but tweaked a hamstring and didn’t start).
Overall, Sambu won the men’s race in 22:45, beating second-place Jason Witt (23:51) by more than a minute. Alexi Pappas won the women’s race in 26:17. Kristen Heckert (26:35) and Linden (27:07) rounded out the women’s podium.
