Each registrant will receive an email confirming their lottery application was received. Once the lottery closes, each registrant will either receive an application confirmation email with a payment receipt or an application denied email with no payment data. Applicants that are not selected are still able to register for the Live the Life Challenge or the 5K ahead of sell out.
Only the 10 Miler distance is included in the lottery. The Live the Life Challenge (10 Miler and 5K) and the 5K will open to the public for general registration on April 3 (confirmed 2023 Shamrock registrants will be able to register for the Live the Life Challenge and 5K in addition to the 10 Miler beginning March 28).
