2021 Route Information and Course Maps
Showcasing the best of downtown Portland, the Shamrock Run will celebrate 43-years running in 2021. 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.
