The inaugural O’Grady’s St. Paddy’s Day 5K Run and Walk will be held at 11 a.m. March 12 adjacent to O’Grady’s Pantry at the entrance to Sleeping Lady. The fully staffed 5K course will utilize trails and dirt roads through pine and fir forests on the Leavenworth National Fish Hatchery Preserve along Icicle Creek.
The chip-timed 5K event is being organized and coordinated by RunWenatchee, which has been holding running events in the region since 2008.
A portion of the proceeds from the event will be donated to a local environmental cause.
