7th Annual Leprechaun Race
March 17 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm
Join us for the Leprechaun Race, a 5K run and walk in Reno, Nevada through the Midtown and Wells Avenue districts. It is family friendly. This is a great first 5K for new runners. Costumes are encouraged.
Yes, there will be a speedy leprechaun in the race. The leprechaun will start after everyone else has begun, giving everyone a generous head start. If you beat the leprechaun across the finish line, you will win a special prize.
Don’t despair if the leprechaun beats you to the finish. For every runner and walker who the leprechaun passes, the leprechaun’s pot of gold will grow in size. Who will benefit from the increased pot of gold? The Terry Lee Wells Nevada Discovery Museum (The Discovery), who is Race178’s non profit partner in the event.
The first 6 years of this event Race178 has made a large donation to the Discovery Museum: $5,000 each year. If another huge field of 1,500 runners and walkers shows up, we will make this type of donation again in 2019.
