Break out your favorite Irish gear for the Catch the Leprechaun 5K

  • Friday, March 15, 2013

If you head towards the end of the Cooper River Bridge Thursday night, you might find a leprechaun’s fortune there waiting for you.

On March 14, Catch the Leprechaun 5k participants will be competing for the mythical man’s pot of gold at the race that is bringing residents of the Lowcountry together to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

“We want the community to step away from their televisions to spend the night outside, having fun and getting some exercise,” said race director Mike McKenna in a news release.

“We tried to add some excitement to the race by creating a festive atmosphere. We hope this will appeal to all the new runners and it will encourage them to make running part of their routine.”

As an incentive to get people to come to the race, race orgnizers added more cash and prizes.

The fundraiser for Pattison’s Academy increased the prize money to encourage the area’s top runners to enter, but it is also introducing prizes that even a turtle with a limp can win. For the first time, a pot of gold will be given to the person with the best costume and there will also be a drawing for a class for five people at Exhale Pilates.
