So that's about 4 miles? Are there any time limits? If you could feasibly walk it within that time, then entering is sensible. There's likely to be parts where many walk a section anyway.

If you just gradually increase your running sections, and try to do some of your runs on hilly routes and off road, you should be ok. It sounds as though the race itself will be hilly, and it is definitely common for people to walk on steep bits. There will be some who will leap up hills like a mountain goat but they're not normal, you can ignore them!
It would be good to do some running downhill off road, that can be challenging as you are afraid of falling, but the trick is to use your arms for balance and almost fall forward, it takes a bit of getting used to!
So go for it, have fun, and don't worry, I think people at these events are often quite friendly and encouraging of newcomers.
