Louisiana Tech University’s Society of Women Engineers chapter is excited to host our third annual Run Like a Girl 5k on May 1st, 2021. All proceeds from this event will be donated to 4 PAWS Rescue, USA in an effort to support the animal shelter in our local area.
In our first two races, we raised over $2500 for the North Louisiana community! Our goal this year is to raise at least $2,000 for 4 PAWS Rescue and raise awareness of the importance of volunteering and/or considering adoption when looking for a family pet. This year, we will be having an additional add-on in which it will allow participants to walk with a dog during the 5K ($5)! The add-on can be purchased on the day of the race.
The 5k will begin and end at IESB (Integrated Engineering and Science Building) on Louisiana Tech’s campus. Each participant that does the run/walk route or the bike route will receive an official final time from a timing chip and a commemorative medal, and trophies will be awarded to winners of the male runner, female runner, and the bicycle races.
Race packet pickup will be held on the morning of the race beginning at 6:00 AM at the IESB Amphitheater on Louisiana Tech University’s Campus. The race times will begin at 8:00 AM on May 1st, 2021. The bicycle race will begin at 8:00 AM and all walking/running races will begin at 8:30 AM.
