Although the weather was windy and chilly nearly 400 men and women clad in green came out to Wilderness Ridge for the first ever Leprechaun Chase 10K. The race started at 12 noon and utilized the cart paths on both the Executive Course and Championship Course. Many racers started arriving around 10 am to grab their race-day packet and green t-shirts. The Lodge was a sea of green as racers prepared to line up for the start.
The race format was a bit unusual with the women starting 5 minutes before the men. This provided a "chase" with the winner of the chase winning green beer for their respective gender. Bridget Easley crossed the finish line first with a time of 39:07.
