Running of the Leprechauns OBXevents

Outer Banks Sporting Events (OBSE) will host the Running of the Leprechauns on Saturday, March 14th 2020. OBSE is excited for another 5K & 10K race!  Each finisher will receive a Finish Medals and an Event Shirt.  There will be awards for the top 3 Male & top 3 Female finishers in each of the two distances.

Enjoy an Irish- themed after party and a “Get Lucky” Costume Contest! Come for the Run and stay for the Kelly’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Sunday!

This years’ 5K & 10K courses are the same as in the past, just altered slightly to start and finish at nearby Satterfield Soccer Complex.  The 10K route includes portions of gravel trail (approx. 2 miles) and is a loop.  The 5K is all on the road and is an out-and-back.
