Join us for The RUN LOUISIANA Girls on the Run 5k
A fun and inspiring event for the entire 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.
More than 1500 runners, volunteers and spectators will make the December 8th 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 500 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.
