About This Activity

The Mardi Gras Run4Beads is the only Mardi Gras Run & Festival in the Hampton Roads area! Dress up in your favorite Mardi Gras costume and run in the Geaux for the Gold 10K (timed, not a color run) or the Fat Tuesday 5K Color Run (untimed)! Participants receive an official race shirt*, welcome bag, color powder and post-race drink ticket. Runners (or walkers) of all levels are welcome. After the run, enjoy delicious refreshments, food from local eateries, and great music at the Mardi Gras Festival. The festival is open to the public as well! 

* (10K runners receive a purple long-sleeved shirt; 5K color runners receive a white shirt, but can opt for purple in advance. See the photo below. The choice to switch to a purple shirt must be made in advance. We cannot switch t-shirts at packet pick-up.)
