Freret Fast


Freret Street has been known to inspire more than a few rough mornings. However, on Saturday October 17th, New Orleanians will wake up early and head to the Uptown hotspot for a cause greater than craft cocktails and live music. Runners will be lining up outside Bloomin’ Deals Thrift Store (4645 Freret Street) for a family friendly race to support the Junior League of New Orleans. 


Movin' Rouge

Red Dress Run Primer



On Saturday (8.07), downtown residents will be seeing red—literally. Thousands of men and women dressed in red dresses will come jogging (mostly) through the city streets in an annual run (and drink) for charity.


Fleet Feet on Freret: JLNO's 5K


By Ashley Rouen

On Saturday October 18th, many Tulane students will be nursing hangovers from Friday night’s outing to the Boot, and other uptowners will be remembering that those coktails at Cure are pretty strong. However, down the street, runners will be lining up outside Bloomin’ Deals Thrift Store (4645 Freret Street) for a family friendly race to support the Junior League of New Orleans. The 2nd Annual 5K walk/run begins at 8a.m. Participants will travel through the Freret Street corridor and Tulane’s oak lined campus, down Audubon Boulevard and head back to the JLNO’s thrift store for refreshments and food from local vendors in Bloomin’ Deals’ parking lot.  


Tip's Ready to Race


By Ashley Rouen

On your mark, get set…go! The Third Annual Rhythm & Blues 5K run hosted by Tipitina’s starts tomorrow at 5 p.m. Along the route, four local marching bands will keep runners’ adrenaline pumping with brass beats until they reach the finish line at Professor Longhair Square. Goody bags await the first 500 registrants. 


Tips Announces Race Details


Tipitina’s is getting in the race—literally. The uptown music mecca just announced the details of their Third Annual Rhythm & Blues 5K. The September 27th event is held in conjunction with the New Orleans Track Club and will benefit the Tipitina’s Foundation. NOLA style, bands will be stationed along the route to provide a soundtrack, and the finish line will welcome the weary with a “festival”.
