Louisiana > YMCA Half Marathon & 5K Road Race
Saturday, November 20, 2010
Featuring a mostly fast and flat course, with a few gentle rolling
hills thrown in, Shreveport's YMCA Half Marathon & 5K Road Race
takes runners through Riverview Park along the jogging trails that run
alongside the Red River that cuts through downtown Shreveport.
Both the half-marathon and the 5K take runners out and back on
the jogging trail along the river and feature beautiful views of the
city and the river along
the way. The event starts at 8:00 AM for the half marathon and 8:15 AM
for those running the 5K.
