Run 4 LSUA, an annual 5-K run and a 1-mile fun run, will be held Saturday, March 25, on the LSU Alexandria campus. The public is invited to participate.

The 5K Run begins at 8:30 a.m., and the 1-Mile Fun Run/Walk starts at 9:15 a.m. Registration is $13 per race for anyone who signs up before March 22, or $15 on race day. People who want to participate in both events will be charged just $7 for the second race, not the full price. Students get a $3 discount.

Runners will receive a T-shirt and a course map of the race.
