Whether you’ve run one or all of them, here are some of our memories from over the years:
  • In 2010, the one and only Ben Cohoon started this event in his garage and put the event at Wilderness Ridge Golf Course with the help of 14 people. Year 1 had 357 finishers, with the Lasses winning by less than 30 steps.
  • 2011 the race was moved to Strategic Air and Space Museum and ran through Mahoney State Park.  We have run from SAC and through Mahoney for 13 Years!!
  • ALL TIME fastest male and female times were set in 2011
  • 2019 – No Chase, just the Green Beer After Party, due to 3+ inches of ice on the race course and subzero temperatures.
  • And who remembers 2021 at Walnut Creek?
  • 2022 – Everyone Gets A Green Beer and Winner Gets the Coveted Green Jacket
  • ALL TIME fastest masters male and female times were set in 2023
  • Clay Simpson became the first runner to 3-Peat Leprechaun Chase – 2024 | Shout out to Kayte Partch, Kaci Lickteig, and Peter Falcon for each winning the race 2 times in a row!
  • Crystal Kmoch wins for Master Lasses for the 3rd Time in 2024. She holds the most wins by a Master Runner at LC10K. Shout out to Amy McCracken, Theresa Gosnell, Tom Woods, Ryan Regnier and Jay Oligmueller for 2 Master Wins Each!

Where does the time go? Thank you for spending the last 15 years running Leprechaun Chase with us and we look forward to running many more with you!
