Time is running out to save money and register as a team for the 2017 Shamrock Run Portland!

Oh no! Did you delay in registering for the 2017 Shamrock Run and missed out on early bird pricing? Fear not, as Shamrock makes it easy to save some money by registering as a team. Now is the time to save up to $5 off of entry fees through race day (or sell out). How, you ask? Here are some requirements:

  • Must have 12 or more participants age 13 or older
  • Team members can do different distances and events
  • Entry fees are non-refundable

When the team is put together, a special ID number will be given and members can sign up with that code. Shirts and bibs will be sent to the designated team captains to distribute to everyone. Speaking of captaining, if you think that you want to be the responsible one and put together a group of people, there are different incentives along the way as a thank you for doing the hard work:

  • $15 entry fee refund.
    • When 12 adult team members have registered, the Team Captain will receive a $15 entry fee refund.
  • $25 restaurant gift card.
    • When your team has 20 adult members, the Team Captain will receive a $25 gift card to Stanford’s Restaurant and Bar.
  • Special Shamrock merchandise item
    • When your team has 30 adult members, the Team Captain will receive a special Shamrock merchandise item with a retail value of at least $35.
  • Two FREE Trail Blazers tickets.
    • When your team has 40 adult members, the Team Captain will receive TWO FREE tickets to a Trail Blazers game in late March or April.
  • Team Captain incentives accumulation
    • Get 40 or more adult members on your team and receive ALL FOUR Team Captain incentive items!  Get 30 or more adult team members on your team and get the $15 entry fee refund, the $25 gift card and the special Shamrock merchandise item.  A team with 20 or more means the Captain gets the $15 entry fee refund and the $25 restaurant gift card.

If you want to tackle this, the Team Captain must send an e-mail request for ID number to Kim Terry. Check out the FAQ page for all information.

Don’t miss out on saving some money. The deadline for team entries is 1159pm on January 31, 2017!
