You will be joined by hundreds of runners, walkers and prancers from around Central Louisiana. If you’ve never participated in a 5K, this is a perfect way to burn some calories, have some fun and immediately replace those calories with a warm hot chocolate, a Fête-Nog or other tasty treats! The run is approximately 3.1 miles, through city streets and the Historic Garden District. The start line includes snow globes, real snow, ice skating and the most cheerful holiday music. Once on course, you’ll find holiday themed stations. Ditch the traditional water or Gatorade as good ol’ fashioned hot chocolate will be stationed on course as refreshment.
Once you’ve completed the merriest run of your life, join us for some post-event festivities. We have everything your five-year old self could want with a few perks of adulthood. Take a much-deserved break from the shopping frenzy, and celebrate your sweater filled day.
