The beautiful 13.1 mile race throughout South Shreveport Neighborhoods begins and ends at Provenance Community! Proceeds from this race supports The Hub Urban Ministries, Purchased: Not for Sale.

Every dollar raised ensures that we can serve women and children trapped in the sex industry and victims of human trafficking.

Event-day: 

-  Location –Provenance Neighborhood 
-  6:30AM – 7:15 AM Walk up registration and pre-registered packet pickup 
-  Only one member in your party needs to be in these lines, waivers will need to be filled out and signed by consenting adult. These are short forms. Minimal information is needed to provide you with results. Please print neatly for clerk. Hand sanitizer will be located at these locations. 
·         -Event T-shirts, race bibs with timing tag on the back and event medallion will be issued as you 

Register or pick up your packets prior to race start. T-shirts are pre-shrunk 50/50 blend. NO exchanges or replacements will be issued after the participant has touched it. We cannot hold your gear or “stash it.” 

-  This will be a wave start event. It is a chip timed run/walk so your time doesn’t begin until you cross the start line. Please wear the race bib in the front. Wave and corral markers will be up race morning. 
-  Race start 7:30 AM Finish 12:00 PM

A few commonsense guidelines: 

-  Please respect people’s space and abide by the 6’ guidelines currently the norm around the world with people not in your party. The social distance police will not be present, please use good judgement. 
-  Do not spit. Cover your mouth if you have to cough or sneeze. 
-  Masks must be worn per municipal guidelines while waiting in lines at pickup or registration, traveling to and from your transportation, using the restroom and waiting for the event to start or finish. 
-  Awards will be given out. We will not post results on site as it creates a congregation point. Results link will be posted online at  www.runsignup.com on the 2021 Race Results tab. 
-  Please do not congregate at the finish line, there is plenty of room to wait for friends and family as well as cheer them on in that great big open field. 
-  The amazing food spread we typically put out at the finish line each year, won’t be able to happen. Congregation, shared utensils, possible airborne contaminants all pose an undue risk. In lieu of not having this amenity we have lowered the event fee. Hope you understand. 
-  Please ask spectators and support staff to skip the festivities this year. 
-  If you’ve tested positive and are or have recovered from Covid-19, been exposed to it, have been medically quarantined in the last 14 days, feel feverish or have a current fever. I am going to respectfully ask you to not participate or visit with us race morning.
