Running of the Leprechauns Event Sponsor
The Running of the Leprechauns was the unique idea of Mike Kelly and hosted at Kelly’s Restaurant & Tavern, every St. Patrick’s Day weekend since 2008. The race started and finished at Kelly’s Restaurant where all finishers received medals and enjoyed Irish Stew and beer at Mike’s restaurant while sharing their running accomplishments with their friends and running mates.
In 2017 Mike Kelly passed the Running of the Leprechauns race baton to the event staff at Outer Banks Sporting Events. Now in 2018, the OBSE Staff is excited for their 2nd year in heading this 5k/10k running event. Kelly’s Outer Banks Catering will help keep the same traditions of a post-race afterparty serving up a delicious warm stew and cold beer Medals are also awarded at the afterparty so don’t miss it!
