Nothing says happy Thursday morning like finishing up an 8 day stretch at work and happy weekend like getting ready for a race weekend on St. Patrick’s Day Weekend! Shamrock Run Portland is almost here and I’m excited to get out to downtown Portland, OR this weekend for some running! Yesterday, I successfully got a fellow BRP, Jessica, to do a double race day with me and do both the 5K and the Half Marathon on Sunday. Let’s face it, more is better right?? Don’t forget, all races get medals!

Looking for some fun around Portland? Here’s some fun stuff to take a look at!

Some important things for race weekend:

  • Expo is Friday, March 15 from 9-7 pm and Saturday, March 16 from 9-3 PM. Be sure to get your bib!
  • Race times are staggered on Sunday, so be sure to know when you’re racing!
  • Know where to park and how to get to downtown Portland if you’re driving in

Get ready to get your run on this weekend and have some fun! Still time to register online and save 15% with SHAMROCKBR10!

Fall racing season is essentially over (let’s face it, Spokane got snow last Friday if that says anything) and the NYC Marathon is in the books (I’ll get to a race review, promise!). I’m jumping on races for the start of 2019 that don’t involve snow and am excited to do a Irish themed race this year in Portland! March 15-17, 2019 will bring the Portland Shamrock run and the way race times are set up, I’m set to run the 5K and Half Marathon.

St. Patrick’s Day this year falls on a Sunday (excited for a holiday on a weekend!) and there are so many race options. On Sunday, the races start at 8 AM with a 5K and over the course of a morning, there’s also a 15K, Half Marathon 8K, Kid’s race and 4 Mile walk. Race for everyone right?

All races start in front of Water Front Park in Portland (OR), runners 21 and older get beer from the beer garden and the 15K and Half Marathon finishers get medals. Feeling extra speedy? Winners of all distances (5K, 8K, 15K and Half Marathon) get their weight in beer (men’s and women’s divisions). There’s also a 2 day Fitness Fair at the Convention Center open to the public and runners!

Come join the fun in the PDX and enjoy St. Patrick’s Day with a Shamrock themed run. Save 10% with SHAMROCKBR10 off any distance and look for the Bibrave Orange!
