All University community members are welcome to help a great cause by joining UP’s Shamrock Run team. All team members get free UP gear to wear at the race on Sunday, March 15, at Waterfront Park in downtown Portland. To join the UP team, you must register online at http://www.shamrockrunportland.com/ (choose the “team” option; the UP code is 1070). Packet pick-up (race t-shirt, pins, bibs, and UP gear) will be available on campus closer to the race date. Online registration for teams closes Saturday, January 31, 2015.
As an added bonus, if there are at least 75 members on the UP team, Shamrock Run will donate $5 per person to the long-anticipated Beauchamp Recreation and Wellness Center, which opens to the University community in August 2015. Last year the UP race team consisted of roughly 160 runners and walkers and was the 7th largest team at the race, and raised nearly $800 for the Beauchamp Center.
