Small Race Preview: 2020 Prineville Paddy Pint Run

If you happen to be in Central Oregon on St. Patrick’s Day weekend and looking for something fun to do, look no further than the 7th annual Prineville Paddy Pint Run. Held at the perfect time of 3pm on a Sunday evening, this is the perfect opportunity to get spend the day/weekend in Central Oregon in before capping off the day with a race. 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.

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. There were almost 500 participants last year, so come out and join in on the fun. Proceeds for the race will benefit the Tooth Taxi and Crook County Foundation.

Participants can pick up their race beanie (how cool is that!?) and goodie bag at Ochoco Brewing on Friday, March 13th or Saturday, March 14th from 4-7 pm.
