Feeling LUCKY?? Let's have a little St. Patrick's weekend fun! 

Look for the Leprechaun on the 5K course.... he will pop up in random places and if you ask him, he will share a gold coin from his bag of gold! Turn the gold coin in after you cross the finish line for a chance to win cool prizes! (The 5K is also a timed race with overall and age group awards, and the course is a USATF certified course for those that want to race!)

BEAT the Leprechaun on the 1K and win! Lucky, our Leprechaun friend, will get a 5 second head start; catch him and win a prize! (The 1K is designed for children 10 and under only, please)
