UPDATE: Due to the forecast of precipitation into Saturday afternoon, the 2nd Annual Rudolph Run and 'Twas the Light Before Christmas activities have been canceled. The Rudolph Run is rescheduled for January 16, 2010.
Back by popular demand, the 2nd Annual Rudolph Run offers a unique way to spend time with family for the holidays on December 12, starting in Parc Sans Souci. This year's run will begin with a new addition, the 1 mile fun run at 3 p.m., and the 5K will follow at 3:30 p.m. The Cajun Road Runners Club will be on site to facilitate and monitor the race. Participants are invited to enter individually or as a family, and runners are encouraged to get into the holiday spirit by dressing in costume for the race. In addition to awards for best time, entrants can vie for the coveted, best costume award, which includes gift certificates from downtown businesses.
