    About 5k races

    A 5k is the shortest of the common running event distances researched on Runnerclick, consisting of 3.1 miles (5 kilometers). These events can either be competitive or social, depending on the particular one you are looking into. They are the most popular of road running events because of their relatively short distance which allows not only the seasoned runners to run, but novice runners, joggers, and new-comers as well.

    How did we choose the best 5k races in Louisiana? 

    We checked what races in Louisiana runners looked for the most and we compared statistics on how many runners held interest in any given event. Feedback left by runners who participated in the races in Louisiana was also considered. Other factors include how long the course has been around, the bling and medals, what runners thought of them and how scenic the course is.

    What are the best 5Ks in New Orleans?

    There are many to choose from here as New Orleans is host to many 5k races throughout its many communities. Some of these are charity events for fundraising, some fun runs, and other racing events but it all comes down to the runners.  Some of the notable 5k races in Louisiana include the New Orleans Foam Glow 5K and the Ruby Slipper 5K.
