Each participant will receive a participation medallion with a hand-painted cross-section cypress knee. We also have an age breakdown for runners, teams for participants best spirited, best dressed, and the largest team as well as special prizes for first and second place winners” Melton explained.

He said all the proceeds from the run will go toward the community, including Bussey Brake, Rose Theatre, Bastrop Louisiana Delta Community College, and Morehouse Memorial Airport. The event will take place at 4656 State Park Rd, Bastrop, LA 71220. It starts at 8:30 a.m and check-in and late registration is from 7:30 a.m to 8:15 a.m.
