Runners who participated in the Shamrock Shuffle on Sunday got plenty of breaks, but they weren't for water.

The shuffle, hosted by Duluth Running Company, made four different pub stops after leaving Leif Erickson Park Sunday afternoon. In the course of 2.8 miles they paused at Carmody Irish Pub, Canal Park Brewing Company and Pizza Luce. Then for the first year, they finished at Dubh Linn Irish Pub, where there was live outdoor music.

The shuffle is more of a fun run than a race, and a portion of the proceeds go to the non-profit Twin Ports Miracle League.
