Mardi Gras Madness 5K Run


Sunday, March 3, 2019

Race Start Time:  approximately 2:00 pm  (actual race start is contingent on the Children's Parade)


The start of the race is at the Police Jury Parking lot (the corner of Lakeshore Drive and Gill Street). It is a point to point race that coincides with the Mardi Gras Children’s parade route.The course runs down the Mardi Gras Parade route just an hour before The Children's Parade. Can't beat the crowd support on this one. At the finish we'll have boudin, King cake, and beverages! Please note--last date for guaranteed shirt is 02/22/2019.  After that, it is a first come, first serve basis.

We are asking everyone to please park at Albertson’s on Sale Street and we will bus everyone to the start of the race. There is no charge for the bus.

The race starts at about 2:00pm, so you need to be at Albertson’s (which is the end of the race) in ample time to catch the last bus, which will probably run at about 1:40.  Traffic is THICK so we have to allow ample time for the bus to get through.

All race registration fees are final.  There are no refunds, transfers or deferrals.  Thank you for your understanding.
