It's a well know fact that Louisiana is the "Sportsman's Paradise". And Baton Rouge is something of an urban oasis. With great parks, trails and a runner-friendly attitude, we invite you to join us for fun running activities year-round in Louisiana's capital city!
Baton Rouge is home to Varsity Sports where you can find great deals on running gear or if you're in town on business, drop in for a group run. Check out their website and running calendar here.
Or if "run, drink and be happy" is more your speed, check out the fine folks over at Happy's Running Club. With Brooks Running as a partner, they host the RunNightLife series of races, plus a 5k group run every Tuesday in downtown Baton Rouge!
If cycling is where your heart is, check out the Capital City Cyclist Bike Club. The group rides every Monday and Wednesday at 5:45 pm. They leave from the Hilton Capitol Center. There is a designated 2.2 mile, 7.3 mile and 9.5 mile bike path. Bikes can be stored at the Hilton Capitol Center with proper locks and registration, and helmets are required.
Water sport enthusiasts can now rent paddleboats at BREC's Milford Wampold Memorial Park. Boat rentals are available at the lake every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and holidays through the end of September from 4:30 pm - 7:30 pm on Fridays and 12:00 to 7:30 pm on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. The fee is $10 per half hour. Renters must be 18 or older; however, a parent can sign for a child who is 12 or older.
Forum 35's Annual Reindeer Run 5k and Jingle Bell Jog 1 mile Fun Run is back this fall in downtown Baton Rouge.

Whether you're running with the reindeer or singing a holiday tune or two, REGISTER today for an evening of exercise and holiday fun.
