Inaugural event includes 5k, 10k and kid’s mile races finishing at 50-yard line of Tiger Stadium
BATON ROUGE — LSU Athletics, in conjunction with SportsBR (formerly Baton Rouge Area Sports Foundation) and FRESHJUNKIE Racing, are combining to bring a new race to the LSU campus – the Tiger 10K – which will have runners finish the face at the 50-yard line in Tiger Stadium.
The Tiger 10K will also offer a 5K and a kids mile option and is set to take place on Sunday, December 3, 2017. The race in and around the LSU campus will give competitors the thrill of a lifetime as the finish line will be setup at the 50-yard line of Tiger Stadium.
Participants will “Race Into Death Valley” followed by a post-race celebration outside the stadium featuring music, food, and refreshments.
“SportsBR is excited to partner with LSU Athletics and FRESHJUNKIE Racing to put together a first-class event for our community that ties the tradition of Tiger Stadium to active lifestyle events,” said Eric Engemann, President & CEO of SportsBR. “Events like Tiger 10K further enhance quality of life for all citizens of our area and provide another opportunity for our community to gather for a very unique experience.”
LSU Athletics, SportsBR and FRESHJUNKIE Racing are proud to bring the Tiger 10K to Baton Rouge for the first time and believe that it will provide a unique running experience that will attract both traditional runners and those who make this their first race.
The LSU Student Athlete Life Skills Program will be the beneficiary of the event, with a portion of the Tiger 10K proceeds supporting total student-athlete development within the LSU campus and community.
Registration for the Tiger 10K races will open August 28, 2017, on the race’s official website Tiger10K.com.
