About This Activity

Our brand new Mardi Gras Madness 5k is a race unlike any the Lake Area has seen before! During the peak of the carnival season, you'll be running the parade route down Ryan Street an hour before The Childrens Parade! The parade crowds will cheer you on along the way, and there will be food, beverages, and zydeco at the finish! The route will start on Gill Street near the Lake Charles Civic Center, and will finish near the end of the parade route near Sale Road. There we will have an epic finish line festival, and you'll enjoy food, drink, and dancing as you watch the parade go by! You can have your family members pick you up at the finish, or we will have race day shuttles to take you back to your car for a small fee.

Event details and schedule

The race will start at 2:30pm on Sunday afternoon. Please park downtown, and plan to be at the race start for 2pm. If you will be riding the race day shuttles back to your car, please bring $5 cash the day of the race. The race will start on Gill Street, and will end on Ryan Street near Sale Road. There will be food, drink, and music at the finish! Packet pickup will be at LA Running Co on Ernest Street Friday and Saturday before the race. Awards will be given out to the top 3 male and female finishers in each age group and there will be awards for top 3 male and female overall finishers.
