The Shamrock 15K course is no joke, but after conquering Terwilliger Blvd., waving at OHSU, and running through the Barbur Tunnel, you’ll have earned all the bragging rights and that green beer. Plus, once you reach mile 5.5, it’s all downhill – enabling you to finish strong in front of the cheering crowds at the Waterfront.

The 15K course starts on SW Naito Parkway and SW Pine (between the Burnside and Morrison Bridges) and travels south along Naito, through the tunnel onto Barbur Blvd before starting the climb up Terwilliger to OHSU, looping back to Naito, and finishing at Yamhill. The course has a total elevation gain of 783 feet and the views are worth the climb.

Here are the ways to get your bib number and t-shirt before race day:

  1. Join a Team of 12 or more!  Team captains get lots of perks, and team members get all bibs and t-shirts shipped to the Team Captains so you get yours before anyone else during the first week of March.
  2. Non-team members can get their bibs and t-shirts at the Shamrock Run Fitness Fair, presented by Moda Health, in Exhibit Hall A/A1 at the Oregon Convention Center.  For runners, your timing chip is attached to the back of your bib number.
  3. Have a friend pick-up your bib for you at the Shamrock Fitness Fair (non team members only). If you need a friend or family member to pick up your bib, please be sure you have:
    1. Signed the electronic waivers in your account.
    2. Provided them a copy of your registration confirmation email (email copy is fine).
    3. Provided them a copy of your photo ID (photo via email or text is fine).
