Participants line up at the starting line for the 29th annual Leprechaun Run

This year’s 29th Annual Leprechaun Run was a Success! The Leprechaun Run, a Philadelphia tradition since 1984 continued on March 16th at The Navy Yard and raised over $27,000 for Special Olympics Pennsylvania athletes.

Thank you to everyone who came out to help make the Leprechaun Run the great event that it was! We couldn’t have asked for better weather, or better participants!

We have big plans in store for next year’s 30th run including bringing the run back to its roots on the second Saturday in March. Stayed tuned toward the end of 2014 for further details on what you can expect from our 2015 Leprechaun Run!
