Mild weather for 2014 Shamrock Run


BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Milder temperatures made conditions more bearable for the people who took part in the 2014 Shamrock Run in Buffalo’s Old First Ward.

The 2014 edition was warmer, less windy, but slightly more snowy.

This marked the 36th year for the run.  Runners might hear loud Irish music, or wear crazy costumes along the route.
