PHOTO ESSAY - SHAMROCK RUN


The 39th Annual Shamrock Run took place on Sunday, March 19th. It is the largest run/walk in Oregon and the third largest run in the western United States. Over 30,000 people participated in this year's Shamrock Run.

A pair of bagpipers play near the finish line. Although the Irish do play an instrument very similar to the bagpipes, the instruments that these men have are actually Scottish bagpipes.

Amanda Rice, 32, crosses the finish line of the 15K race. Rice was the fifth female finisher, finishing the race with a time of 57:46.

Todd Pendell, 49, of McMinnville celebrates as he crosses the finish line of the 5K race. Pendell wore gloves during the race, which was a good decision. It was cold and breezy for the 5K race, with temperatures in the mid 40s.

The Shamrock Run helps showcase Portland's diversity with a wide variety of people participating in the event. However, despite their differences, they all share a love for running... and beer. Additionally, as can be seen here, they share similar facial expressions at the finish line.
