Chilly, rainy weather wasn’t enough to stop the third annual Shamrock ’n’ Roll 5K race in Newark from being as good as a pot of gold. The race, beginning at The Greene Turtle, attracted 176 participants, many of whom came dressed for the holiday. Runners from Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and even as far as New York City slogged their way to the finish line. Ages were diverse too, ranging from 5 to 82 years.

Xavier Alvarez, from Elkton, MD, was the first to cross the finish line with a time of 17:52:0. Natalie Rosenberg, of Wilmington, had the best women’s time with 21:59:6. Money raised from the race benefited the Multiple Sclerosis Society and the Newark Jaycees.
