(Note: The registration site has been updated to allow an attendee to register up to 3 individuals for the Fun Run.)
Fun Run Date: 25 February
Time: 6:00 A.M.
Location: Meet at Woldenberg Park, approximately 300m north of the Convention Center.
Entrance Fee: $30 USD and includes a mug with the Race Logo and timing chip.
What to Expect: Please join us on Thursday for the second annual Ocean Sciences 5K Fun Run. The course is within walking distance from the conference center and follows a scenic run along the waterfront before turning up Esplanade Avenue and eventually returning along the same route. All participants will get a Fun Run Mug from which to enjoy drinks during the meeting, and all proceeds will go towards improving the water quality, coastline, and habitat of the local Lake Pontchartrain Basin. Please visit the Registration area for more information and to receive your pre-race packets.
Proceeds will go towards Lake Pontchartrain Foundation, a local non-profit which invests in research, outreach, and restoration of the Lake Pontchartrain Basin. View more details.
Race packets, including the Race Mug, a timing chip, and directions to Woldenberg Park, will be available for pickup in the registration area of the conference center starting on Monday of the Conference Week.
For those seeking a more strenuous run, there is the Rock and Roll Half/Full Marathon/Relay/10k on Saturday following the meeting. This has no affiliation with the Ocean Sciences Meeting. Read more.
