In light of the Governor’s ban on large gatherings, all Shamrock weekend events are canceled.
We understand how disappointing this is to the community and are offering our participants the option to compete via a Virtual Run or defer their entry to the 2021 race. More details are available in our blog post.

Showcasing the best of downtown Portland, the Shamrock Run will celebrate 42-years running in 2020. Portland’s longest running tradition features multiple distances ranging from the one mile Leprechaun Lap for kids 10 and under, to the half-marathon. All of the races start and finish at Tom McCall Waterfront Park, offering sweeping views of Portland’s skyline, Willamette River waterfront, and at least seven unique bridges. The post-race ‘Finish Line Festival’ welcomes both runners and spectators, featuring a green beer garden and live music for a St. Patrick’s Day party like no other.
