The 2019 Louisiana Watermelon Festival 5k event offers a great challenge to local runners and walkers. This course is a fast first mile downhill followed by what we like to affectionately call Watermelon Mountain at mile 2.
This year, proceeds from the event will go to Willpower Foundation, Inc. This is a non profit organization made up of volunteers in Northeast Louisiana that host events to race money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. In 2018, Team Willpower ranked 3rd in the nation for the amount of money raised at St. Jude's Memphis Marathon. Learn more about the organization from their website teamwillpoweronline.com
To top it all off, at the end of the race there will be slices of locally grown Louisiana Watermelon for all finishers to enjoy.
