The following description was submitted by the event organizer.

Showcasing the best of downtown Portland, the Shamrock Run will celebrate 46 years of running on St. Patrick's Day 2024. Portland’s longest running tradition features multiple distances ranging from the one-mile Leprechaun Lap for kids. All races start and finish at Tom McCall Waterfront Park, offering sweeping views of Portland’s skyline, Willamette River waterfront, and several 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.

The Shamrock Run has established itself as an iconic and spirited running event, ingrained in the city’s culture and community. With a tradition that dates back to 1978, the Shamrock Run is not just a race; it’s a celebration of Irish heritage, camaraderie, and the spirit of Portland.
