Leprechaun-a-thon set for March 17
Lights, foam, bubbles and more are part of the course for the sixth edition of the Harbin Clinic Leprechaun-a-thon, and runners and walkers can register now for the event planned for March 17.
This year’s race features a flat, fast course and a few special areas where runners can run through bubbles and foam. The finish line has been transformed into a miniature St. Patrick’s Day Festival with a large foam area.
“The Leprechaun-a-thon has become a great tradition for Harbin Clinic, and we thought including the lights, foam and bubbles would add more fun elements to this family-friendly event,” Harbin Clinic CEO Kenna Stock says.
The race begins at 7:30 p.m. with the walk begin- ning five minutes later at 7:35 p.m.
Registration for the event is currently open, and anyone interested in participating in the 5K run or two mile health walk can sign up by going to the Rome Floyd Parks and Recreation website at rfpra.com/ leprechaun-a-thon.
“This race features something for everyone. We encourage families and children to come out and walk or run and participate in the costume contest,” Kevin Cowling, director of Rome-Floyd Parks and Recreation, said.
