Description

Pick out your best green running clothes and join us for our 4th Annual Leprechaun Dash! Race to the pot of gold at the finish line! Each of our first place overall finishers (all 4 of them), plus one lucky post-race raffle winner will each receive FREE RACE ENTRIES FOR THE 2021 RACEVERMONT.COM RACE SERIES! The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place overall winners, and the winner of each age group will also receive a prize (see below).

The course for this race is an out-and-back which is relatively flat for the 5K and has a pretty decent, but relatively short hill for the 10K (walking up it is ok). Click here to view the map.

Commemorative super soft cotton blend t-shirts are available for $15 while supplies last. We do not generally order extras for race day.
