The Shamrock Shuffle is one of our favorite races of the year, signaling the start of the spring running season and the arrival of weather that is conducive to long afternoons spent jogging through the city's streets. We're also a big fans of the creative costumes that some participants wear as they conquer the five-mile course. This year's Shamrock Shuffle occurs on March 29, but it's not too early to start planning your flashy, green attire. We combed through the race's archives and gathered some photos of our favorite getups throughout the years. If you're feeling really inspired, you can rock some of these looks during this weekend's St. Patrick's Day parades and festivities.
