The start line for the 10K and 5K course will be on South Stadium Dr. in the shadows of LSU Stadium’s new South end zone addition. Runners will be corralled according to expected finish times with the fastest runners in the front and walkers in the back. Both the 5K and 10K races will start at 8:00am in a wave start fashion. 150-200 runners will be allowed to start approximately every 30 seconds.
5K Runners will proceed East on South Stadium Dr. and turn onto “Sorority Row” at West Lakeshore Dr. and East Parker Ave. This portion of the course will also be where the 10K runners rejoin the 5K course. The remaining portion of the course will be divided by cones to keep 5K runners and 10K runners in separate lanes. Runners will see Dalrymple Dr., the LSU Law Center, the Student Union and Parade Grounds, the Bell Tower, Campus Quad and the Indian Mounds on their way to Victory Hill. Once runners turn onto North Stadium Rd. they will be running down the same Victory Hill that the LSU Football team walks down with the Golden Band from Tiger Land. A quick left turn onto Powerhouse Lane and runners will be making their way into the Southeast Gate and onto Tiger Field. The finish line awaits at the 50 Yard line and the North end zone scoreboard will be showing video of you cross the finish line and slapping the WIN bar!
