Days until: Race Weekend
The biggest St. Patrick’s Day celebration in the Pacific Northwest, the Shamrock 5K is our most popular distance! Join thousands of runners and joggers on this out and back 3.1-mile block party in the streets.
The Shamrock 5K starts at SW Pine and Naito Parkway on the Waterfront. Runners will stay on Naito for the majority of the 5K course except for a quick excursion to Taylor –> 1st Avenue –> Salmon –> back to Naito to get that 0.1 mile in, making it a true 5K (3.1 miles). The turn-around point is on Naito, just past the Tilikum Crossing. The course ends on Naito Parkway in front of a cheering crowd at the intersection of SW Yamhill.
