One of the most exciting events in Jefferson Parish is just around the corner, Race to the Lake. This 10K race extends from Lafreniere Park to Kenner’s Laketown. As a title sponsor, Lamarque Ford anticipates this will be a fun event that Jefferson Parish and greater New Orleans residents can enjoy in the coming years.
Race to the Lake is more than just a 10K run, though, it is accompanied by a series of events during the weekend and after the race. Race to the Lake hosts an expo for the runners and other members of the community on Friday and Saturday at Pontchartrain Center, with pre-holiday specials on running gear, outdoor sports equipment, boats, and more. There is also a festival after the run that is open to the entire community.
This year, the post-run festivities include acts including Rebirth Brass Band, Big Sam’s Funky Nation and Flow Tribe. The after party is a chance for the community to come together and celebrate. This event is always a blast and Lamarque Ford is proud to be in great company with Team Gleason, Massey’s Outfitters, and many other important sponsors.
Registration for Race to the Lake is still open and costs $40 per entry. We hope to see everyone there participating and celebrating Jefferson Parish’s signature recreational event of the year.by
