All three Shamrock races – the 5K, the 8K and the 15K – will be chip-timed by End Result Company. Your timing chip is affixed to the back of your bib number and is disposable. Nothing is attached to your shoe laces and there is nothing to remove when you cross the finish line.
Bib numbers for non-team runners are to be picked up at the Shamrock Fitness Fair at the Oregon Convention Center on Friday, March 14 or Saturday, March 15, or on Shamrock Sunday at the Will Call canopy at Waterfront Park.
Team members who are running in the 5K, 8K or 15K must get their bib number from their team captain after March 7.
The men and women winners of the 5K, 8K and 15K races (including the wheelchair divisions) will be mailed gift certificates from the Shamrock Run during the week of March 17 with instructions for how to redeem their weight in Widmer Brothers beer.
Sorry, but no Shamrock Run awards, gift certificates or gift cards will be presented on race day.
The first five overall men and women registered finishers in the 5K, 8K and 15K races will receive Stanford's gift cards in the following amounts:
1st PLACE: $150 Stanford's gift card
2nd PLACE: $100 Stanford's gift card
3rd PLACE: $75 Stanford's gift card
4th PLACE: $50 Stanford's gift card
5th PLACE: $25 Stanford's gift card
Top-five finisher awards will NOT be presented on race day. Instead, these award winners will be mailed their Stanford's gift card during the week of March 17.
The top five overall finishers will also be mailed an adidas Shamrock Run sport bag, but are not eligible for age group awards. The sport bags will be mailed during the week of April 7.
Age group competitions will be held in the 5K, 8K and 15K races. The first three men and women finishers in each age group and the winners in the overall wheelchair divisions will receive a commemorative Shamrock Run sport bag, compliments of adidas. Age groups start at 14 and under and continue in 5-year increments (15-19, 20-24 and so on) through age 80.
Age group awards will NOT be presented on race day. Instead, age group awards will be mailed during the week of April 7.
All registered finishers in the Shamrock 15K will receive a commemorative bottle opener medallion at the 15K finisher canopy in the park near the finish line. Sorry, but these awards are given only to 15K finishers. You must “go the distance” to receive a Shamrock medallion.

Sorry, results will not be posted at the event site at Waterfront Park.
As a USATF-sanctioned race, the Shamrock Run must follow USATF rules in determining the top 5 overall winners in the 5K, 8K, and 15K races. This means that, for those three categories only, a runner's official race time begins when the starting horn sounds. USATF recognizes "gun times" and not "chip times" when determining a runner's official finish time. Age group awards, however, will be determined by chip times.
