About This Activity

Saturday, March 12 | MLK Drive by the Art Museum 8:00am Registration | 9:00am Start Time THIS YEAR’S 5 MILE RUN AND 2 MILE FUN RUN/WALK IS KEEPING THE BELOVED LEPRECHAUN RUN AT ITS ROOTS! AS A PHILADELPHIA TRADITION SINCE 1984, THE RACE WILL BE RETURNING TO THE SECOND SATURDAY IN MARCH NEAR THE ART MUSEUM! LAST YEAR’S LEPRECHAUN RUN RAISED OVER $30,000 FOR SPECIAL OLYMPICS PHILADELPHIA AND OUR NEARLY 1,800 ATHLETES RIGHT HERE IN THE CITY! Did you know… $10,000 can underwrite health screenings for 400 new athletes! $5,000 gives 22 athletes the chance to shine through Special Olympics programming for an entire year! $2,500 provides the opportunity for one SOPA athlete to represent Philadelphia at the National Games! $1,000 covers the cost of training and equipment for the entire Philadelphia Special Olympics basketball program! Events like the Leprechaun Run are an integral source of funding for our program that serves nearly 1,800 athletes and for the literally thousands more potential lives that our programming could touch!
All proceeds of the Leprechaun Run benefit Special Olympics Pennsylvania athletes in Philadelphia.

Incentives Did you know, on average, it costs $236 for ONE athlete to compete in Special Olympics Pennsylvania programming for an entire year? A little fundraising can make a BIG impact.
During the registration process you’ll be prompted to determine your own personal fundraising goal! A personal fundraising page will also automatically be created that you can access once you confirm your registration. Use this personal page to keep track of donations and send out email templates to friends and family. You can also share your goal with your networks on social media! If every runner raised an average of $50, we would raise nearly $75,000 for Special Olympics Philadelphia!
To reward you for going that extra mile, we’re offering some fantastic incentives using a tiered fundraising system. Please note that ALL registrants receive a cotton version of the event shirt (unless upgraded to dri-fit).
