Various Streets in Portland

The adidas Shamrock Run features a wide range of distances for every level of runner including a 5k, 8k, 15k and Half Marathon, plus a 1k Kids Leprechaun Lap and a 4-mile Shamrock Stride!

The 40th annual Shamrock Run will be held in downtown Portland with 25,000 participants. Listed below are the various streets that will have temporary closures for the event:

The adidas Shamrock Run offers competitive races at 5 kilometers (3.1 miles), 8 kilometers (4.97 miles), 15 kilometers (9.3 miles) and a half-marathon (13.1 miles) with a field limit of 3000 runners. Shamrock also offers the Shamrock Stride – a 4-mile fitness walk – and the “Blazers Leprechaun Lap,” a 1km (0.6-mile) run/walk for children age 10 and younger.

All the courses start at Waterfront Park near SW Oak and Naito Parkway and run through the center of downtown Portland for a fun urban experience and feature slightly downhill final sections. The 15k and half-marathon routes include the challenging, and scenic, Terwilliger hills. The new Shamrock Stride 4-mile walk boasts city views and a river walk including the Tilikum Crossing and Steel Bridges.

Shamrock Sunday activities in the finish area include the Widmer Brothers Brewing beer garden, complimentary hot soup and an entertainment stage with performances from local musicians. Music is featured at the starting line and along the Shamrock routes. Hours for the post-event festivities: 8 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. in Waterfront Park.

All downtown streets WEST of SW 1st Avenue will remain open all morning.
