Pink Bra Run
The inaugural Pink Bra Run was a smashing success! Last year we had 194 runners and the community of Algiers Point provided some fantastic support. We anticipate 300 runners and even more support from the community this year. Decorate that bra and come out to support the fight against breast cancer! Get your tickets below.
What is a Pink Bra Run you might ask? Picture in your mind 200 participants who show up in decorated bras to run/walk a 5K along the Mississippi River levee with the beautiful New Orleans skyline in the background. If you are familiar with New Orleanians and their costumes, then this run is sure to be a sight and 2017 will be even better - Come on out and enjoy!
Starting in Historic Algiers Point on the Mississippi River levee across from the Old Point Bar, the Pink Bra Run is a 5K that will offer some of the most beautiful scenes of the New Orleans skyline and the Crescent City Connection. Start time is 9:00am. Registration is as early as 8:00am. Show up in running gear or show up in costume – remember, this is a Pink Bra Run…so go ahead and bedazzle that bra and let’s go for a memorable stroll. There will also be a contest for the best decorated bra.
