Go for the Pot o’ GOLD!  The Catch the Leprechaun 5K is a 3.1 mile race for walkers, joggers, competitive and non-competitive runners and stroller pushers (no bikes or dogs please). We encourage everyone to dress in their best Irish/Green outfit. Prizes are awarded to top runners and there is a costume contest!  The course is a flat out and back course on pavement.
