St. Paddy’s Day 5K

March 15, 2020 · Temecula, CA

Distance: 5K


Join us for our 9th Annual St. Paddy’s Day event at its new location: Heritage Hill in Murrieta, CA! This is now a (some paved/mostly wide trail) 5K TRAIL RUN with spectacular 360˚ views. Because it is a trail run, there are multiple start waves: 8am | 8:30am | 9am | 9:30am. Be sure to sign up in the same wave as your friends and family!

This is a totally do-able mixture of paved road and wide trail! You will make your way from the start line straight to the crest of Heritage Hill then frolic about the perimeter enjoying the magnificent 360˚ views. Wind your way to the finish line and finisher’s festival at the very top of the hill where you will be awarded with a well-deserved lucky green drink of choice (21+), dance party, endless frolicking, giveaways, and more views than you can possible handle!

Race entry includes chip timing, t-shirt or tank, green drink of choice (21+), themed race bib, and a lucky finisher’s medal at the end of the rainbow! 

If you are under 21 or do not drink, non-alcoholic options will be available! All ages welcome but strollers and wheeled devices will not be allowed on the course. Spectators welcome!

This is a challenging, but totally do-able paved and wide trail run; think of it like a beautiful Sunday morning hike…. with benefits!
