Can You Catch Shiny Mareep on the Community Day Classic?

Yes, you will be able to catch the shiny version of Mareep during the November 2023 Community Day Classic in Pokemon GO. However, it is very rare.

The odds of Mareep being shiny in Pokemon GO are 0.2%. This means that just 1 in 500 Mareep you encounter will be the pink shiny version!
