COMING THIS WEEKEND

LACE UP for New Orleans Pride run & Walk!

Hey there, fellow pride enthusiasts! Karen Brem here, marketing director extraordinaire for the charming Historic mardi Gras Inn. As we gear up for this weekend’s most anticipated event, the New Orleans Pride Run and Walk, I’m thrilled to share all the fabulous details with you.

This Saturday, June 29, 2024, Audubon Park at 6500 Magazine St., New Orleans, LA 70118, will come alive with vibrant energy and community spirit. Whether you’re a seasoned runner, a casual jogger, or someone who just enjoys a good stroll, this event is for everyone. The starting gun goes off at 8:30 AM sharp, so mark your calendars and set those alarms!

Now, let’s talk logistics. The cost of entry is between $30 and $50, and every penny goes to a fantastic cause—the New Orleans PFLAG Scholarship Program. This wonderful initiative is all about empowering education and fostering pride in our students. It’s the seventh anniversary of this incredible event, and we’re inviting you to be part of this legacy.

When you join us on Saturday, you’re in for a treat. Every participant who crosses that finish line will receive a finisher medal. It doesn’t matter if you sprint, jog, or stroll; the medal is yours as a token of your achievement. And that’s not all—each participant will also get a commemorative T-shirt and additional goodies from our amazing sponsors. Surprises are in store, folks!

One of the highlights of the Pride Run and Walk is the Largest Team Competition. This category is all about rallying your friends, family, and colleagues to form the biggest, most spirited team. It’s a fantastic way to show your pride and support. So, gather your crew and get ready to make some noise!

Here’s a quick rundown of the schedule:

7:30 AM:** Race day pick-up and registration.

8:30 AM:** The 5K run/walk kicks off.

9:45 AM:** Announcement of the Largest Team Award.

And once you’ve crossed that finish line, the fun doesn’t stop. Stick around for the post-race party, where you can celebrate with your fellow participants. Dance to live music, enjoy delicious food, and soak in the vibrant atmosphere. It’s the perfect way to cap off a morning of pride and community spirit.
