COVID-19 & Firecracker

We want our running/ walking community to have a good time, but it is extremely important that people remain cognizant of what is going on.
Keep practicing social distancing measures that you have been using the past couple months.
We want to demonstrate that some events can begin to happen if they are done the right way!
Please make sure you read over the COVID-19 guidelines for this year's race on the race info page.

Donate to Spine Institute

80% of Americans experience back pain or spine disease. It is one of the most debilitating health problems that we face. The Spine Institute of Louisiana Foundation is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization whose mission is to improve current spine treatments and develop new ones through innovative research. Thousands of patients in the Ark-La-Tex have directly benefited as a result of the research that is done through the Foundation.
