May 9th, - Happys5000 RACE DAY!!!
Welcome to the 6th Annual Happys5000 (5k) Run/Walk/Crawl... also known as The Downtown Spectacular 5000 Meter Road Race.
This event mixes Music+Food+Art+Exercise to create a very unique participant experience.
We hope to see you on May 9th!
It all started in 2008 during a car ride to New Orleans when one of the 2DumbRunners had an idea to start a Social Running Club. The concept was simple enough - mix beer, music, and food after a casual 5k run through Downtown Baton Rouge and hope 15-20 of our friends would join us. Well, the club grew a bit faster than we thought and over 1,200 members later we said, "why not do a 5k race on a larger scale?". Alas - The Happys5000 Road Race was started in 2009 and the 2016 race will be our 6th year of the Happys5000 Road Race.
