Eleven different bands have been lined up to play on the various street corners during the Tipp Hill Shamrock Run this Saturday march 8. Ed Zacholl, who is one of the major organizers of the September Tipp Hill Music Festival, lined up the bands. They will be playing outside from 11 a.m. to noon. In addition, runners and walkers will be asked to vote for their favorite bands.
The USA Track and Field certified four-mile race will follow the same route as last year taking runners past many of Tipp Hill's favorite landmarks, including the world famous "Green-On-Top" traffic light, and of course, the many popular pubs.
This four-mile course was designed by the Neighborhood Association Race Committee, in conjunction with the Syracuse Track Club. It's a great training run for the Mountain Goat.
