If you're a walker, the Portland Shamrock Run is NOT for you. Even though
we were told we'd be supported by the sponsors of the race, the pace cars
went ahead of us, the signs and roadblocks were taken down before we went
through. When we informed the police officers of the problems, we were
told to "Suck it up" and "walk faster" (we were walking sub-14 minute
miles). On the flip side, the race volunteers were very supportive
cheering us and seemed genuinely concerned when we informed them of the
problems. I felt VERY unsafe on the race route.
