We regret to inform you that we are cancelling tomorrow's 10th Annual Leprechaun Run. Given the rapidly changing conditions regarding COVID-19, federal and state warnings to heed social distancing, and in consultation with Timer Guys and our parent organization Hesston College, we have decided it is best to not hold the event. The fact that it will be cold and wet tomorrow morning and leaving folks wanting to huddle together before and after the race...causing the exact opposite of social distancing...helps confirm that we are making the most prudent decision.
Pre-registered participants have been emailed additional instructions, so please check your inbox for those instructions.
Thank you so much for your support of the Leprechaun Run and Dyck Arboretum and we are already looking forward to hosting you next year.
Keep walking/running, folks, and stay healthy!
On Saturday, March 14, 2020, Dyck Arboretum of the Plains will host its 10th Annual Go Green Leprechaun Run. This year's race will again feature an upgraded chip-timing system. As in years past, the event will include a 10K race and 2 Mile fun run/walk for all ages, with St Patrick's Day-themed refreshments and an awards ceremony. Additionally, event coordinators are planning a photo booth for participants to show off their green and Irish spirit, and perhaps even pose with a leprechaun.
Registration and race packet pick up will begin at 8:30 a.m. and both races will start at 9:30 a.m. The awards ceremony will start at approximately 10:45 a.m. All portions of the event will take place at the Dyck Arboretum of the Plains, located at 177 West Hickory in Hesston, Kan.
Sponsors for the Leprechaun Run include AGCO, Atomic Sports, GLC Real Estate Service, Golden Plains Credit Union, Advanced Physical Therapy, Kairos Consulting and Counseling, LLC, The Citizens State Bank, A Cut Above, Everence, Excel Industries, and Waste Connections.
The community is encouraged to come out to Dyck Arboretum for this unique and fun event, which helps to underwrite the educational mission and programming at the Dyck Arboretum. Many volunteers are also needed to help make this event successful.
