powered by Performance Fitness
May 5, 2012 - 9:00 a.m.
A fun and inspiring event for the entire RUN LOUISIANA community on the beautiful grounds of the Pennington Biomedical Research Center!
Men, women, boys and girls of all ages are invited to join us. The event is non-competitive but a clock will be available at the finish line for runners to check their times. Every finisher will receive a custom RUN LOUISIANA Girls on the Run 5k medal.
Thanks in part to the Run Louisiana movement, more than 1200 runners, volunteers and spectators will make the May 5th event one to remember!
Run Louisiana represents the growing community of support for new and experienced runners in Louisiana. The Run Louisiana family is proud to run alongside the 300 local 3rd-8th grade girls who are celebrating the end of their 10-week Girls on the Run season and the amazing volunteer coaches and running buddies who have inspired their journey.
After the race, participants and family members will be treated to a CELEBRATION Pancake Breakfast. There will be music and fun pre and post-race activities for all kids.
