LEGENDS are created,
and HISTORY is made.
Tiger 10k is partnership between LSU Athletics, SportsBR and FRESHJUNKIE Racing that brings together all the tradition, pomp and circumstance of LSU Football and Tiger Stadium into a fun, festive road race event. The goal of the event is to give the entire LSU community; fans, students, alumni, faculty and staff, no matter age or ability, an opportunity to complete their journey in the shadows of Tiger Stadium. An opportunity to make their mark on that hallowed ground where so many have left theirs. The 2018 race will be finishing in the shadows of Death Valley in Scotty Moran Champions Plaza, which is designated to commemorate LSU All-Americans and members of the College Football Hall of Fame. We will NOT be finishing on the 50 yard line in the stadium this year because Tiger Stadium playing field will be undergoing a field replacement and demolition is planned to begin November 19, 2018, directly after the last home football game.
A bit of History on the Race.
Where did Tiger 10k come from? Go back to April 2007, at the CrazyLegs Classic in Madison, Wisconsin. Eric Engemann, then an intern at the University of Wisconsin, watches as 17,000 people complete an 8k race on the field at Camp Randall Stadium. While Camp Randall is a beautiful venue with great tradition, he thought a similar event at Tiger Stadium had potential to be an amazing experience for LSU fans.
October 2010 – LSU and BRASF meet for the first time regarding a Tiger Stadium finishing race. Through years of discussion, starts and stops due to construction and other changes on campus, LSU and SportsBR agree to move forward with the event in the spring of 2017. On December 3rd, 2017, 4,000 runners took to the streets of LSU and Baton Rouge to begin their journey to Death Valley.
Will you leave your mark? Registration opens for the 2nd Annual Tiger 10K July 23, 2018.
