5K celebrates fitness, St. Patrick’s Day in Ocean Isle Beach

Ruthie McHugh, fitness coordinator at Brunswick County Parks & Recreation, developed a program three years ago to help people prepare to complete a 5K. Its popularity has evolved to Lucky Leprechaun, a 5K fundraiser with more than 200 community members and avid runners participating, many in St. Patrick’s Day garb. Their children and pets, also in green attire, are invited to run or walk with them.
