Clark Hosts Shamrock Run

By Becca Robbins in Life

Clark is putting together “Team Penguin” for the 2015 Shamrock Run.

Participants can sign up online for several events from a 3.1-mile walk to a 13.1-mile half-marathon on March 15.

They are still in need of participants to reach their goal of a 75-runner team.

If this goal is reached, the Shamrock Run Organization will donate $5 for each member of “Team Penguin” to the Clark College Foundation honoring Alex Montoya, former dean of Enrollment Services who was killed in 2011.

“It’s a blast,” said coordinator Joe Jenkins. “There’s thousands of people all dressed up in their crazy Irish gear.”

Runners receive free event shirts and marathon finishers also get medals.

To sign up go to http://www.shamrockrunportland.com and click “Click here to register online” tab. The entry code is 5340. Registration ends Jan. 31.
