Active family fun on Shamrock Run Sunday at the Tram

(March 12, 2015)  Is this the weekend you'll engage in "especially Active Transportation" - will you be in this Sunday's Shamrock Run?

The Tram will be running on Sunday from 7:00am to 5:00pm to help relieve traffic congestion for Marquam Hill and  OHSU-bound travelers, but anyone can ride! You'll have great views of the city, the river, and the runners along the 15k and Half Marathon routes - and children 6 & under ride for free.

After the event come to the Shamrock Family Fun Day at the lower Tram station. From 11:00am to 2:00pm we'll have free arts and crafts for the kids. Bring home a Leprechaun Trap to make your St. Patty's Day festive, and plant some shamrock seeds for extra luck. Pick up a copy of the Portland Tram Activity Book, great for entertaining youngsters while the adults discuss their favorite running shoes. There will even be a quiet space with books for kids and parents to read up on leprechaun lore.

For a stress-free trip to the Tram take the Portland Streetcar NS line, or try walking or biking. You can also park free in the Whitaker Street lot. See you Sunday at the Portland Tram!
