Sunday, March 16th — Leprechaun Run
Join us for the 29th Annual Leprechaun Run, a Philadelphia tradition since 1984. This 5 mile run, 2 mile walk will take place at The Navy Yard in Philadelphia on Sunday, March 16th, 9 a.m. just in time for your St. Patrick’s Day celebrations!
The Leprechaun Run benefits Special Olympics Philadelphia. The mission of Special Olympics Pennsylvania is to provide year-round sports training and competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills, and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes, and the community.
All training and competition opportunities are provided free of charge to the athletes and their families, enabling everyone to experience the benefits of Special Olympics that extend well beyond the playing field.
