Aye, Lads and Lasses, Ladies and Lords - it's but a wee moment since summer passed us by, autumn was but a wisp of wind, and winter will usher us in to a fresh spring morn' for the 3rd annual LUCKY LACES 5K/10K& Little Leprechaun Fun Run!
Indeed, regardless of whether you're a frolicking family of four out for a wee bit o' fun in early spring sun - or if you're training for a might bit further distance - if you can outrun a leprechaun, make sure you are not green with envy for not participating in a day of fitness, fun and folly in Denver's City Park!
And ye'd be remiss if ye din't remember that the whole thing benifits Denver Urban Ministries, and bring along a food or clothing item for Colorado's hungry and less fortunate! Aye, for yer trouble we'll give ye a green ribbon to wear throughout the race!
We've heard there's a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow - and at the end of the Lucky Laces finish line! Food, plenty of beer and cheer and and some of that good ol' Colorado Celtic Folk Rock with a bit of an edge!
LITTLE LEPRECHAUNS RUN AT 8:40 AM / 5K/10K BEGINS AT 9:00 AM
AFTER-PARTY BEGINS AT 10:00 AM AT THE PARKSIDE MANSION
1859 YORK ST, DENVER / DIRECTLY ACROSS FROM CITY PARK
HOSTED BY ODELL BREWERY / FEATURING DELILA'S REVENGE
