Leaping Leprechauns! The Lucky Me Color 5k is just another fun First Flight event! Join in on the fun on March 15 with a line up time of 8:00 am and start time of 8:30! We will gather at the new beautiful Carolina Wren Park on Whitner Street, jam to some St. Patty day tunes and line up to get colored LUCKY as we run Main Street! When you finish, you should look like a Leprechaun and if you don't we'll be happy to make sure that you do! The race will conclude with a dance party and color explosion just on the other side of the rainbow! We will then celebrate your experience as we draw LUCKY number from the POT OF GOLD! Lots of prizes, lots of color and lots of fun! Registration is limited and we sold out last year, so make sure that you get registered early so that you're not feeling unlucky on March 15th!!
Proceeds from the race will go to scholarship children in our community that desire to play league sports, dance, karate, cheerleading, tennis, etc. or other activities but lack the funding to do so. We are excited about you joining us for a FUN and COLORFUL day!!! Walker-Safe. We encourage and support all levels of athletes. The course is designed to be a lightening fast 5K for athletes while providing a safe environment for those walking for fitness and fun. This race will not be a timed event but will be very GREEN!
