Race Preview: 2018 Dirty Leprechaun 5K (Tualatin)

St. Patrick’s Day is chock full of local races, meaning you should be able to find a race that scratches whatever itch you have. If that happens to involve an mud-filled obstacle course with a 5K, then you should look at Terrapin Event’s Dirty Leprechaun race, to be held on March 17, with wave starts beginning at 10 a.m. (elite) and continuing to 1 p.m.

Here are the quick and dirty (ha ha) details:

  • It’s a timed 5K race, with 20 different obstacles!
  • Check out the names of some of the obstacles for an idea of what you’re in for: Teeter Totters; Are You Tired Yet?; The Wiggle Workout; and more. (Full listing on this page.)
  • The race venue is Lee Farms, which offers lots of mud, rolling hills, and more.
  • Race registration includes a finisher’s medal, race shirt, one free cider or beer, food, and music.
  • Want to run it again? You can buy an “unlimited pass” and go through the course as many times as you like.
  • There’s also a kid’s obstacle race – 1.1 miles.
  • Parking at Lee Farms costs $10; otherwise, parking is free at nearby Legacy Medical Group, with a free shuttle running approximately every 20 minutes.
