St. Patrick's  day celebrations are perfect opportunities to dress up like a crazy Leprechaun and hit the streets running. Come celebrate an early St. Patrick's Day  with the 2nd annual running of the Leprechaun Chase and Leprechaun Leap on Saturday, March 12, 2022. This race consists of a 5 mile run and a 1 mile run/walk. Participants are encouraged to dress for the occasion in green or a favorite Irish costume.  Awards will be given to the top 3 male and female finishers.   This year's 5 mile Leprechaun Chase will be chip timed by Watt's My Time.  

We are currently planning an in-person event as well as an option to complete the race virtually. We understand the uncertainly of COVID-19 at this time.  Your health and safety is our top priority.   We will  be implementing procedures such as a wave start in order to ensure everyone's safety.  We continue to monitor the situation and will follow the CDC guidelines, as well as our local officials.   Unfortunately, if Elkhart County is in the red at that time, we will have to cancel the in-person event and move to virtual only.  At that time all registered in-person participants will be transferred to a virtual event.  Unfortunately, we will not be able to issue any refunds.  We hope to see you for another great running of the Leprechauns! Sign up early for the cheapest prices!

This year's proceeds will benefit  IGNITE INFINITY.  Ignite Infinity’s vision for our community is to inspire wellness through an active and healthy lifestyle through collaborative programs and events focusing on movement, connection, and service.  To learn more about Ignite Infinity visit their website at: www.igniteinfinity.org 

Packet Pick Up will take place at the Nappanee Public Library on Thursday, March 10 from 5-7pm and also on race day starting at 9am.
