Garmin's Chicago Store celebrated with 45,000 runners this past weekend with an unseasonably warm 8k race. The Shamrock Shuffle is a tradition that’s grown in popularity and has come to be known as the start of the Chicago Race Season. After spreading the Garmin word at the expo, three women from Garmin Chicago joined the masses and raced around downtown Chicago. Check out Hayley’s run below.
The Chicago Store has all you need to get going this summer, with a full line-up of the latest in GPS watches and accessories. We know that Chicago races go under tunnels and around big buildings, that’s why Hayley used a foot pod with her Forerunner 210 to back up the distance and pace. You can try it out before you buy it with our exclusive rental program. Now available to rent is the Forerunner 210, 410 and 310XT with the brand new Forerunner 610 soon to be added.
You can also now pre-order the new touchscreen Forerunner 610, Garmin’s latest GPS watch, expected in early May. Each purchase from our store comes with a complimentary one-on-one GPS Academy session that will help you understand the full potential of your watch.
Check out the pictures from the Shamrock Shuffle and we look forward to a great running season ahead! The Rock ‘n Roll Half and Chicago Marathon will be here before you know it!
