UCSB’s Shamrock 5-Miler Selected for Jimmy V Don’t Ever Give Up Run Series

The series raises money and awareness for the V Foundation for Cancer Research

The Shamrock 5-Miler, the second race in the UCSB Running Series, has been selected as one of the lead races in the national Jimmy V Don’t Ever Give Up Run Series.

The series aims to raise money and awareness for the V Foundation for Cancer Research.

“We are really excited to be joining forces with ESPN and to help put this on,” said John Lofthus, associate director of the UCSB Alumni Association. “While the primary goal of the UCSB Running Series will continue to be raising funds and awareness for student scholarships at UCSB, we are delighted to be able to help focus attention on cancer research as well.”

The Shamrock 5 Miler, set for Saturday, March 5, will once again feature both individual and team competition. The race for the Yellow Jersey will be on the line with locals Mike Shalhoub and Cindy Abrami currently wearing yellow.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
