Event Description

The 1st annual Shamrocked 5K and Leprechaun Chase takes place on a scenic, point-to-point course during the month of March, when the weather is starting to warm up, making it perfect for a challenging trail run.  You are more than welcome to walk the course as well. The course winds through picturesque woods, with several small hills and excellent cross country terrain. The event also includes live music, a race t-shirt, a race medal, a post race snack and the option to register as a group at a discounted race. You are welcome to dress in your favorite St. Patty's Day attire, as a leprechaun, or decked out in all green. And, for those of you who are competitive, race timing will be provided.
All proceeds will benefit Guardian Christian Academy's brand new GCA Sports Complex, to allow the community to enjoy all that the sports complex has to offer!
