Just a reminder...the Louisiana Gold Mile fun run this Friday night,
on Marconi Drive and Robert E. Lee Blvd. (near City Park).

The first Annual LA Gold Mile directly benefits our DetermiNation team!

The D-Nation will be offering FREE registration for the Rock'n'Roll Mardi Gras Marathon, including paid training with USA triathlete level coaches from Elmwood Fitness Center! There can't be a better way to kick-off your Labor Day weekend!

Online registration is active and recommended. The registration fee is $25 online, and includes a long sleeved Brook's technical running shirt, a goodie bag filled with items from our race sponsors, as well as entrance to the post-race party which includes music, cooking demonstrations and Abita Beer! The fee will increase to $40 on race day - so register early!

Please forward to your friends, family and volunteers. This is going to be a fun, family event for labor day weekend. Strollers are welcome on the course!

"This special event for walkers, joggers, and competitive runners supports our local DetermiNation Team for the American Cancer Society, and will take place on Marconi Drive near City Park in New Orleans, on Friday, September 3 from 6:30pm-8pm, with a party featuring food and entertainment directly afterwards. Louisiana Gold Pepper Sauce is our title sponsor, anchoring our group of traditional Louisiana companies including Abita Beer, Hubig's Pies, Kentwood Water and many more. There will be a live cooking demonstration staffed by Louisiana Gold's chefs alongside locals, as well as music under the stars. Our sponsors have provided excellent awards for participants, as well as cash prizes for our fastest runners. Additionally, attendees will receive lagniappe in the form of a good bag stuffed with local flavor. The one mile Fun Run and Walk takes participants on a simple and smooth out-and-back loop from the Official Finish line and back."
