TEAM EARLEY's Leprechaun Leap is a 5K run-walk event held on Sunday March 12th in downtown Nashua. This professionally timed race will have a common start and finish line located at the library crosswalk near 144 Main Street.
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. Pre-race activities (registrations, number pick up, race-gear sales) will conducted inside Martha's Exchange across the street from the stating line. Race-day registrations will be available from 8:00-9:30AM. The race will begin with a short runner's parade leaving the registration area down Main Street to the starting line. In true Irish-style the parade will be lead by our own Leprechaun Leap Bagpiper.
This is a USATF-certified 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.
TEAM EARLEY has partnered with Martha’s Exchange - 185 Main Street Nashua, to host the after-race celebration party. All race participants (21 years and older) are welcome to join us at Martha’s for some traditional Irish celebrations.
