When will the event be rescheduled?
We are not able to choose a date at this time, and it is completely out of our hands at this point. The future date will depend on the developments surrounding the Coronavirus. It will still be St. Patrick's themed so keep your costumes ready!
How do I know if I'm registered for the race?
You can enter your name HERE at the top of page to see if you are registered. You can also re-send your confirmation email to yourself.
Can I bring my stroller?
Unfortunately, no. There are parts of the trails that are narrow, have sharp corners, and/or steep inclines so a stroller (or any wheeled device) is not permitted.
Can I bring my dog?
No. We ourselves would LOVE to be able to bring our own little furry running companions, however, for the safety of our runners, they are not allowed on the course as there are parts of the trails that are narrow, have sharp corners, and/or steep inclines.
What if I have a service animal?
If you bring your service animal, we just ask that it wears an identifiable vest or collar to alert other participants that the animal is working, although not required.
Is there a bib pick-up prior to the race?
No. You will be able to pick up your bib and shirt on race morning starting at 7am until the last wave goes at 9:30am.
What if I miss my wave?
If you miss your wave, we can most likely fit you in to another one. Unless it's past the last 9:30am wave!
Does everyone get a finishers medal?
YES! All registered participants get a sweet finisher's medal!
What if I don't drink or I'm under 21?
Well it's your lucky day! Lyre's Non-Alcoholic Spirits will be there pouring a special St. Paddy's Day cocktail! Non-alcoholic sparkling cider will also be available.
Can I buy a green mason jar mug or an extra tank/t-shirt on race weekend?
YES but we recommend you pre-purchase the mason jar! *While supplies last*

Can I transfer to another runner?
YES transfers are allowed for a $10 fee. Please submit all transfer requests to email@example.com.
Can I switch my wave?
YES you can for a $10 fee if there is still space available in that wave. Please submit all wave change requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I can no longer run, can I get a refund?
We do not offer refunds however, you can transfer to another runner or defer to next year for a $10 fee. Please email email@example.com with the first name, last name and email address of who you would like to transfer it to.
Can I park on-site or get dropped off at the race start?
Yes, there will be parking onsite for a $10 CASH ONLY fee collected by the venue. Traffic may be heavy so we HIGHLY recommend carpooling, ridesharing, or getting dropped off. There is a drop-off area close to the race start.
Will there be bag check?
Yes! We don't want you getting cold after you run so yes, there will be bag check! Please bring your own bag. Your bib will have a tear-off that you will fasten to your bag. Then give your bag to one of our trusty volunteers in the registration area and we will take it up to the top of the hill for you. When you want to retrieve your bag, just show the volunteer your matching bib number. We are not responsible for any lost or stolen items.
What is the course like?
This is a totally do-able mixture of paved road and wide trail 5K! Think of it like a beautiful Sunday hike... with benefits!
The start line is at the bottom of the hill and you immediately make your way to the crest of Heritage Hill, on a wide paved road. You then enter wide trails along the perimeter of Heritage Hill and frolic about, enjoying the magnificent 360˚ views. Wind your way to the finish line and finisher's festival where you will be handsomely rewarded! ;) YOUR FROLIC ABOUT THE HILL COURSE MAP IS HERE
How much water and fuel is on the course?
There will be course support at about the 1.5 mile mark. If you like to drink more water than that we recommend carrying a fuel belt or a water bottle so you can fill up at the water station. In addition to water, Ultima Replenisher electrolyte drink will be available to you. There will also be a portable restroom available at the top of the hill.
Is there a time limit?
No. We will be there with bells on when you get there!
How do the awards work?
Medals + winner basket will awarded to 1st place male and female finishers of each wave. Winners are chosen by GUN TIME ONLY. What that means is the winners are determined by the time the race starts, not according to when you cross the start line. So if you're planning on competing to win, please make your way to the front. But please be careful on the trails, this is all for FUN, no pushing or nudging or you will be disqualified. With that being said, no blocking the trail either. Be sure to use your audio cues "on your left", "on your right", etc.
Since this is a smaller race, we will not have age category medals. However, you will still be able to look up your age category place online in the results! Age categories are: 0-9, 10-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79, 80+
Will there be food there?
YES! The FOOD DOOD truck will be there serving up "rad mobile grub" for our amazing runners!
Do I get a shirt?
Yes you sure do! You get to choose between a t-shirt or a tank! SEE THEM HERE
Are there race photos?
Yes there are! Photos will be available a few days after the event. Our photography team works hard to ensure you get the best quality photos so it does take a little time. You will be the first to know once they're available!
IMPORTANT: WEAR YOUR BIB ON THE FRONT OF YOUR SHIRT
Please wear your running bib on the front of your shirt and keep it visible when the photographers are around! This will increase the chances that you will be able to search your bib number and see photos of yourselves! We've seen a lot of runners wear them on their legs and because the bib wraps around, the numbers are not always visible. Also, if you wear a jacket or tie your shirt/jacket around your waist make sure your bib is showing!
Where is the after-PARTAY!?
The official after-PARTAY is at The Shamrock Irish Pub & Eatery, Murrieta, voted the #1 Irish Pub in CA! Show your bib for 10% off your entire bill! Starts at 11am until whenever - all ages!
Why did you change locations?
We LOVE Cougar Winery but recently, Riverside County made some changes and we are no longer able to hold our event there. But the party must continue, and we know you will love our new location and concept!
What if it rains?
This is a rain or shine event and we are watching the weather and conditions closely. If the trails are deemed to be unsafe, we will reschedule for a later date. Fear not, Sandy Feet Events has never canceled an event, only rescheduled in very extreme circumstances. And you would be the first to know!
