I've absolutely never in my life participated in a mud run. Granted, I am an avid trail runner, so I have experienced my fair share of mud, high water, and other nastiness - but never in a 'mud run' sort-of-way. I'm seriously considering taking the plunge and experiencing this phenomena at the Dirty Leprechaun event, by Terrapin Events. Saturday, March 12 at Lee Farms in Tualatin, Oregon, get ready to celebrate the upcoming St. Patrick's Day! This chip timed 5K mud run will feature 20 or more fun, yet challenging, obstacles, bonfires to keep warm at, covered areas to celebrate, showers ($5), food, mimosas, cider or beer (21+ of course), plus a lot more - and a great time, of course! Looking at the list of obstacles, I think the 'Leaping Leprechauns', 'Hay Bale Hill', and 'Shoe Snatcher' sound awesome! All the action takes place behind Lee Farms Store, and shuttles to/from the start/finish are available!

Get this gorgeous finisher medal for $10 when preregistering!

At 10 a.m., the first wave will begin. Then, every 10 minutes, another way with a maximum of 40 participants will take to the course. Teams are welcome! If you register a team of 8 or more, save $5 off. For those teams that are 40+, Terrapin Events will donate $5 to an organization of your choosing. Super cool!

Your entry fee includes a commemorative Dirty Leprechaun event shirt. Finisher medals will be available during the registration process for $10. Additionally, since we are going to be super dirty after finishing, Terrapin Events has set-up a donation bin where you may deposit your muddy shoes after the event. There is also a gear check and changing rooms (whew!). (And I will mention it again – showers available for $5)! 

The shirt deadline is February 23, so I strongly encourage you to get registered prior to that. Also, the race have a 1,000 participant cap, so don’t miss your opportunity to get in on the action!
