Details about the 2017 Shamrock Fitness Fair

We may still be a month away from the 2017 Shamrock Run, but did you know that the half marathon is nearing capacity? Make sure you check out the registration details below for all distances, as well as in our site’s sidebar! If you are needing a little extra motivation, let’s chat a little bit about the Fitness Fair on Friday, March 17th (11a-7p) and Saturday, March 18 (9a-3p).

The Fitness Fair is held within the Oregon Convention Center and is the place to pick up your bibs and shirts. Feel free to bring your family (it’s open to the public). The kids will enjoy Leprechaun Lane. Think about coming between 430p and 6 on Friday, to check out live music and partake in munching on some appetizers and washing it down with the latest Widmer beer.

In addition to all things Shamrock, there will be over 80 exhibitors on site for you to get details and discounts on races, running clubs, fitness products, food and beverages, as well as  games and contests from all kinds of booths. Here is a list (from the Shamrock website).
