Brandon and I when he discovered what

The best resource for local road races and triathlons

There are so many great races on the calendar for this area, 
sometimes it is hard to keep up with them.  
The place that I check when I am looking for a race.  

COMING UP AT GEAUX RUN!!


SATURDAY, MARCH 10TH - GROUP RUN - 6:30 am from the store.  There will be a variety of distances and paces, so come on out and join us!!  As of now, Weather Underground says there is a 50% chance of rain. If it is raining, we run.  If there is lightning, we go for breakfast and coffee instead. :)



TUESDAY, MARCH 13TH - GLUTEAL STRENGTHENING 101 - 6:00 P.M. - led by Marie Potter DPT,FAAOMPT,OCS,SCS, ATC  of Boulet Physical Therapy and Wellness Institute.
- Learn the current evidence on how gluteal strengthening prevents common running injuries
- Learn strengthening exercises to improve strength and decrease injury

- WIN DOOR PRIZES!!
Wear running or workout clothes!!




FRIDAY, MARCH 16th - 6:00 P.M. UNTIL...  BROOKS GUYS NIGHT 
There will be food, drinks, giveaways, and a few other surprises!  
Come by to see what Brooks has to offer!




SATURDAY, MARCH 17TH - 6:30 a.m. - GREAT HARVEST ST. PATRICKS DAY BEER BREAD RUN!!  Distances will be 5 or 8 miles, starting and finishing at Great Harvest Bread Company on Kaliste Saloom.  Stay to visit after the run and try Great Harvest's Beer Bread and Cafe Cohen's incredible coffee!




SUNDAY, MARCH 18TH - TRAIL RUN AT CHICOT STATE PARK!! Leaving from the shop at 6:30 a.m., or meet us at the trail head at 7:30.  I am planning on doing an out-and-back run - probably for a total of 10 miles, but you can do any distance you want by going in further, or turning around sooner.  REMEMBER - these runs are completely self supported.  You have to carry everything you may need for the run - fluid and nutrition.  Carry a little more water than you think you might need.  Just because you can run 10 miles on the road without drinking doesn't mean you can run 10 miles on the trails without drinking. Email me with any specific questions - Edie at geauxrun@gmail.com.

Thanks for all of your support!  I am looking forward to sharing the trails again with you soon!!
