If you are up for it, take on the Leprechaun Challenge (do all 3 distances) at one of the best St. Patrick’s Day race events with an awesome post race party in Florida. The photo booth will be open during the race and you will want your Dunedin St. Patrick's Day photo strip for your wall of self race fame. This year our green mustache theme comes with finisher's medals that will make everyone GREEN with envy! It all happens beginning ON St. Patrick’s Day Friday, March 17, 2017, at packet pick up. Don’t drink too much green beer at the run start the following morning on Sunday, March 19, 2017 in downtown Dunedin.
