Looking for a St. Patrick's Day weekend fun run to get your celebration started? You may consider The Leprechaun Challenge, completing back-to-back 5K run/walks on March 16 and 17 in Palm Harbor and Dunedin and a duathlon.

The exercise leprechaun has dropped the gauntlet. 

His challenge?

Two 5K races and a duathlon in two days, in two neighboring downtown districts who know how to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.

And only 18 spaces remained in the Shamrock 5K, as of mid-day Monday, March 4, according to organizers.
