Race Preview: 2018 Prineville Paddy Pint Run

2018 marks the 5th year of the Prineville Paddy Pint Run. This festive 5K and 1 mile run or walk encourages participants to deck themselves out in green costumes in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. This late afternoon race will start at Good Bike Company and send runners through the heart of Prineville at the blast of a cannon. There will even be optional pit stops with refreshments – which will be revealed in your registration information. The finish line and post-event block party will be at Foundry Four, where awards will also be given out. A map of both courses can be found here.

Proceeds from the Paddy Pint Run benefit the Crook County Foundation and the Tooth Taxi.
