The race has a new starting line this year and the course will showcase some mostly rural running routes in West Albany. There will be a couple short jaunts in the more downtown Albany area, including an out-and-back right along the Willamette River for the 10-milers. The 5k will stay south and west of the high school and won’t have as many country roads to navigate.

After the race, bottled water, snacks (including pizza), fruit, and other items will be given out at the finish line for all race participants. Shirts are available for purchase when you register online for an extra $15.00.  A limited quantity will also be available on race day.

If you are going to run with your kids for the Little Leprechauns Dash, that is totally OK! Kids will receive a shamrock bopper headband and a goodie bag, so make sure you bring them out as well.

Can’t run but want to get involved? Volunteer here.
