2019 Leprechaun Leap

Race/Festival Information

Our second annual Leprechaun Leap will kick-off with our first ever City to City run from Mullins to Marion; the City to City run is a 15K, which and can be performed individually or as a relay team!

We encourage all walkers and runner, who don’t feel up to the 9 mile challenge, to register for the relay component of the race, which can be done with three (each person runs/walks 3 miles each) or two (one person runs/walks 3 miles and the other runs/walks 6 miles) team members.

The Leprechaun Leap is a great way to be active, as well as be part of our St. Patrick’s Day fun; runners are encouraged to dress in their favorite St. Patrick’s Day attire or at least wear GREEN in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day.

After the race, we will have a beer garden – all race entrants (over the age of 21) receive a ticket for (1) one free beer and admission to our festival, which will include a golf cart parade, food vendors, artisans, and live music and entertainment throughout the day and into the evening.

During the festival, prizes will be awarded for our best dressed Leprechaun, along with prizes to our best St. Patrick’s Day-themed vendor booth and golf cart. And, be sure to bring a lawn chair or blanket to enjoy our fun day of festivities.
