Presented by:


Open only to RUNNERS (all ages permitted).  NOTE: Shamrock Stride 5k walkers will have their own route and start time in 2017.

The new* 5k Run route features these benefits:

  • A faster route along SW Naito
  • The first start time of the day for easier parking and start area access
  • Only 2 MAX/Streetcar crossings
  • Entirely out-and-back with more opportunities to wave to your friends
  • No congestion along the route with runners doing other distances
  • Only one turn, which is at the turn-around point
  • A new finish line at SW Naito and Yamhill

* UPDATES FOR 2017:  The Shamrock Run will feature new routes for all distances!  We have been required by the City of Portland to redesign our courses because of severe police staffing limitations.
