The Lucky Leprechaun 5K in Reston: Go for the Gold

Spring is just weeks away, and the Lucky Leprechaun 5K is giving locals a reason to get outdoors before the change of the season. This 5K is opening up its course to the whole family, hosting a kids’ fun run at 9 a.m. on March 15, preceded by a 5K at 8 a.m. for adults looking to break a sweat before Saint Patrick’s Day. All participants in the race will receive a shirt, and those who complete it get a medal! Additional awards will be given out in several categories to those who did exceptionally well in the race. After the race, music entertainment and refreshments will be available for the participants. The runners will all be timed and the times will be available online immediately.

Photographers will be present during the race photographing the runners. After the race the photos will be posted and participants can search their bib number to see what pictures they’re featured in. Those looking to run are encouraged to register in advance online and view the course map. Free parking will be available at the Reston Town Center Parking Garage on the day of the race.
