Showcasing downtown Portland, the Shamrock Run will celebrate 45 years of running in 2023. 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.
