Shamrock Super Teams -- 75 or More

Super means “Massive” in Irish!

A great fundraising opportunity for teams with 75 or more members.

For teams with 75 or more adult members, Shamrock Run Portland will make a donation in the name of your team, company or organization to the charity of your choice at the rate of $5 per adult team member. For example, a Shamrock Super Team with 120 participants age 13 or older would raise $600 for your non-profit!

Creating a Shamrock Super Team is an easy way to support a great cause, and everyone wins. Team members already receive a $4 discount off the individual entry fee. By expanding your team to 75+ Shamrock participants, team members can combine their recruiting and team-building efforts to help raise funds for a worthy group or organization. The recipient can be a high school band, choral group, athletic team or club. Or, maybe your team wants to make a donation to a well-known charity, or even to our primary beneficiary of the Shamrock Run – Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Foundation.

The team captain will be notified when his/her team becomes a Shamrock Super Team. When that occurs, and we will mail a check in the name of your team during the week of April 10. In the meantime, Team Captain’s can track their team’s registration total online, log-in to using their login email and password.

So, get busy! Bigger is definitely better at Shamrock! The team and Super Team registration deadline is Wednesday, January 31, 2018. To get your Shamrock Super Team started, have the Team Captain register to create their team while registering for the Shamrock Run.  After the team is created, Team Captains can log-in to using your login email and password. Shamrock bib numbers and shirts will be shipped to the Super Team captain to arrive on or before March 5.

All Super Team entries must be submitted online by Jan. 31 to qualify for Shamrock “Super Massive Team” status. If you are a team captain and already have your team started, spread the word and encourage all of your team members to do the same to reach the 75-participant level and be a Shamrock Super Team.

In 2017, we had 21 Shamrock Super Teams and donated more than $18,000 to various non-profit organizations. After Shamrock 2018, we expect our cumulative donations from the 7-year history of the Shamrock Super Team program to exceed $175,000. Congratulations to our great Shamrock Super MassiveTeam captains and their team members!
