Yes! There is a Leprechaun in the race – can you beat him?

Run in Reno’s vibrant and historic neighborhoods, Midtown and the Wells Avenue District, at the 6th Annual Leprechaun Race. The Leprechaun Race is an easy 5K that the whole family can enjoy. The relatively flat course starts and ends in front of the Terry Lee Wells Nevada Discovery Museum. Runners or walkers of all abilities can easily participate in this fun run.

Race178’s official leprechaun will also be joining in on the race, starting after all of the competitors are on the course with a healthy head start. If you beat the green elf across the finish line, you get a special prize! If the Leprechaun beats you, then the pot of gold gets bigger, which benefits the Discovery Museum. So wear a green outfit or create a St. Patrick’s Day costume and join the fun.
