The Leprechaun Chase is known for being one of the finest 10K course in Nebraska. From its indoor start to the scenic views of Mahoney State Park, lads and lasses from far and wide come every year to take it on.
Parking and Arrival
Due to limited parking, you’ll be assigned a parking area prior to the race at either Mahoney State Park, SAC Museum or Ashland Ball Fields / Ashland Elementary. The Ashland lot will be serviced by shuttle buses before and after the race. Your parking assignment depends on how soon you registered and is part of your registration at either location (i.e. no additional race day hidden cost).
Please consider carpooling and make sure you arrive early. It will take at least 45 minutes to park and get to the starting line—even if you have your race packet.
The first 500 registered runners will receive priority parking at the SAC Museum. Registered runners 501+ will park inside Mahoney State Park or Ashland Ball Fields / Ashland Elementary School unless they are carpooling with someone with a SAC Museum parking area. The Ashland lot will be serviced by shuttle buses before and after the race. This location does not cost extra, it is included in your registration fee. Please Note: Your Bib Number does not correspond with the time your registered.
Late Arrivals: If you show up after 3:55 PM, you may not be allowed to park in either parking area due to the fact that the race course begins in this area.
Early Departures: If you need to leave immediately after the race you will need to park in the east parking lot of the SAC Museum or in the Mahoney State Park lot. The west SAC Museum lot will not have access until after the race at 5:15 PM.
