All four Shamrock races – the 5K, the 8K, the 15K and the Half-Marathon – 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 13 or Saturday, March 14, or on Shamrock Sunday at the Will Call canopy at Waterfront Park.
Team members who are running in the 5K, 8K, 15K or Half must get their Shamrock bib number (and T-shirt) from their team captain between March 5 and March 14.
The men and women winners of the 5K, 8K, 15K and Half (including the wheelchair divisions) will be mailed gift certificates from the Shamrock Run during the week of March 16 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, 15K and Half 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 16.
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 6.
Age group competitions will be held in ALL 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 6.
All registered finishers in the Shamrock 15K and the Shamrock Half will receive a commemorative bottle opener medallion after they cross finish line. Sorry, but these awards are given only to 15K and Half-Marathon 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.
