TEAM EARLEY's 5th Annual Leprechaun Leap 5K road race event to benefit Melanoma awareness is being held on Sunday March 12th @ 10:00 AM in downtown Nashua. This professionally Chip timed race will have a common start and finish line located near the library crosswalk at 144 Main St, Nashua, NH.
Leprechaun Leap 5K was selected to kick-off the 2017 New Hampshire Grand Prix race series, hosting runners from more than a dozen New Hampshire running clubs and High School 5K Challenge teams from across the state competing for points and prizes. The race is open to runners/walkers of all ages and abilities, and not exclusive to NH registrants.
LL5K Race Headquarters is at Martha’s Exchange, 185 Main Street. All Pre-race activities will be held from 8:00-9:30AM and include: race day registrations, packet pick up, and official LL5K race-gear sales across the street from the starting line. at 09:45, in true Irish-fashion, a Bagpiper will parade runners from Martha’s down main street to the starting line at the corner of Temple.
LL5K is a USATF-certified 5K course designed as a unique out and back 5K race event heading north on Main Street towards Greeley Park traversing Granite St./Berkley St. to Swart St. and returning down Concord/Main Street to the finish line. The downtown event promises to bring hundreds of spectators to the streets of Nashua to witness the Leprechaun Leap victory.
Post-race ceremonies begin at 11:30 AM back at Martha’s Exchange. Activities include awards and prizes for top runners by age category, top NHGP teams and top HS 5K challenge teams. Prizes will also be awarded to the best-dressed Leprechauns.
