RACE START TIME
Lasses – 4:00 pm,
Lads – 5 ½ minutes later
This isn’t your average
St. Paddy’s Day Run.
Meet us at the Strategic Air & Space Museum for the Leprechaun Chase 10K Omaha. Bring your skill (and a little luck) and run a PR while decked out in green from head to toe. Lasses start the race in the first wave and the lads chase them 5 ½ minutes later. Whoever finishes the race first wins a free beer for their gender at the Green Beer After Party.
So hike up your green socks, slap on your green suspenders and put on every shamrock thing you own. You might even win “Best Dressed” lad or lass award or take home a Pint Glass Award for the top 3 in your age group.
Race day is Saturday, March 7, 2020
$49 through February 28, 2020
Your registration package includes the race (duh!), fun surprises galore, and community fundraising. Plus, all these swagalicious treats…

RACE DAY PACKET PICKUP
STRATEGIC AIR & SPACE MUSEUM
Packet Pick-Up will be available on race day, but we STRONGLY encourage you to pick it up in advance. After all, why stand in line when you could be showing off your finest Irish jig?
Strategic Air and Space Museum
(28210 West Park Highway, Ashland, NE 68003)
Due to limited parking, you’ll be assigned a parking area prior to the race at either Mahoney State Park, SAC Museum or Ashland High School. 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 750 registered runners will receive priority parking at the Museum. Registered runners 751+ will park inside Mahoney State Park or Ashland High School unless they are carpooling with someone with a SASM parking area. 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 SASM or in the Mahoney State Park lot. The west SASM lot will not have access until after the race at 5:15 PM.
GREEN BEER AFTER PARTY
Party in St. Paddy’s Day style just steps from the finish line. The Green Beer After Party takes place in a huge airplane hangar at the Strategic Air & Space Museum where the winning gender gets their free beer, awards are presented and food and drinks are served.
A free drink will be awarded to Team Lads or Team Lasses depending on who crosses the finish line first. If a lass wins, all of the ladies get one free drink. If a lad wins, all of the guys get a free drink.
FOOD AND DRINK
Race participants can enjoy water and snacks at no charge. Green beer, food and other alcoholic drinks will be available for purchase.
