Lucky Leprechaun 5K – March 20, 2012

Thanks to all of the sponsors and volunteers who helped to make this a successful event!  Nearly 1/3 of all participants were competing in their first 5k race!  In fact the top over 40 year old man and women participants in their first 5k walked (or rolled) away with new mountain-bikes!  Overall champions, 55 year old David Smith (17:40) and super mom Sara McGeough (23:14), took down two night stays at the Winds Resort in Ocean Isle Beach.  Thanks to all, and see you at next year’s Lucky Leprechaun!
