Race Preview: LIVE Prineville Paddy Pint 5K/10K on March 14th!


As we move further into this new year, races are starting to pop up. Some are virtual, some are in person, and some are a combination of both. The Prineville Paddy Pint will offer runners the choice to race virtually, or in person thanks to 15 minute starting waves. As you might imagine, this could make your experience even more fun as you can register to take off at the same time as your friends, and complete the course as a group!

The Prineville Paddy Pint will of course follow all guidelines, according to the OHA, but one nice thing about racing in a smaller community are the smaller crowds. And while the Paddy Pint might feature less people, it will still be full of fun times, fun costumes, and a great people.

There are new contests this year, so make sure to like the race Facebook page to find out how you can win prizes! The whole town is getting in on the fun, so you won’t want to miss out. It actually looks pretty sweet:

Snap your picture with you and the item (list in the Contest section of FB page) in it between Friday, March 12th and Sunday, March 14th.  Post the picture onPrineville Paddy’s Pint’s Facebook page with the hashtag #RunPaddy2021.  Make sure to ‘Check In” to the business on social media if you find the item there to show support.  The more pictures you post, the greater your chance to win prizes!

Also, if you are just in town for race day, there is a contest on the course too!

During the Paddy Pint race, use the clues from your swag bag to locate Paddy Pots along the route.  Drop in a wooden token (also in your swag bag) in each pot for a chance to win prizes.  If you have tokens remaining after the Finish line, we will have a final entry pot at the Swag store.

When: Sunday, March 14th. Race waves begin every 15 minutes at 1pm (through 330pm).

Where: Pioneer Park
