If you happen to be in central Oregon on St. Patrick’s Day and looking for something fun to do, look no further than the 4th annual Prineville Paddy Pint Run. Held at 5:30 pm on a Friday evening, this is the perfect opportunity to get a little fun run (or walk) in before kicking off the weekend! The event offers a 5K or 1 mile run/walk which will tour downtown Prineville with optional “pit stops” stocked with refreshments along the course at Starbucks, SOB and at Good Bike Co. Proceeds for the race will benefit the Tooth Taxi and Crook County Foundation, with over $10,000 raised at last year’s event!
Grab your lucky running shorts and your favorite green top hat, because costumes are encouraged and prizes will be available at the after party in the downtown area.
Participants can pick up their race beanie (how cool is that!?) and goodie bag before the race on March 16th 4:00- 7:00 pm at Ochoco Dental.
