Leprechaun Dash 5K
Sunday, March 11, 2018
The 2018 Leprechaun Dash is a family friendly celebration of St. Patrick's Day. This year's race will benefit The Downtown Willoughby Organization and the Community Grants Program. We will also be holding a "stuff the truck" event for local charities that support those in need. Bring clothing, shoes, or blankets to donate to help those that can use the items you no longer need.
Last year we had a little over 300 runners and walkers participate in the 5k and Kids Dash. We hope that you will help us surpass last year's total and bring your whole family to this great event!
This event is set up to have something for the whole family. The crowds really got into the festive spirit last year and came in their best St. Patrick's day attire. We will be looking to have the streets filled with kilts and plenty of green again this year!
Head over to Willoughby Brewing Company when you finish up your run for a drink, discounts on your food order, music, check your results, and the awards ceremony as they have welcomed us back for a second year.
The selfie contest continues to create some great pictures and fun for the event so of course we will be bringing that back. Make sure you are taking your selfies throughout the event and posting them in our Facebook Event page!
Every Registered runner in the kids dash will earn a race medal. Race takes place near the start line. The kid's race will start at 10:30AM, half hour before the 5K.

Food Drink and Entertainment
We will have music at the starting line and in Willoughby Brewing Company after the race is over. Chick Fil A will be on site once again. Since it is a Sunday they will not give out sandwiches but we will stuff your packet with Chick Fil A coupon and still have all the kids activities, games, etc, and Willoughby Brewing will provide some great deals afterwards.
Selfie Photo Contest
If you can have some fun before, during, or after the race, and can document it with a picture you are eligible to win this prize. Use the custom Snap Chat Filter for the race and share your picture with #LD5K2018 we will pick our favorites and then open it up to a vote on our facebook page. The winner will get free entry into the Great Lakes Race Timing event of their choice!
