Costuming Encouraged: We want the NOLA Bluedoo Run to be a fun and festive celebration of prostate cancer survivorship and the importance of research in finding a cure. Participants are encouraged to costume in blue–the color of prostate cancer awareness–for the event.
Food/Entertainment: Walkers and runners will enjoy the sounds of Tulane's Soundwave Pep Band and the extraordinary moves of the 610 Stompers before the starting gun, as well as an after-party featuring complimentary food, beer, water, soft drinks, a silent auction and New Orleans-style entertainment by Walter "Wolfman" Washington and The Roadmasters.
Silent Auction: There will be opportunity for supporters to participate in a silent auction featuring a variety of incredible items, including:
Please check back as the event date nears for more details on the items available in the silent auction as well as information on auction times, etc. All proceeds will benefit Tulane's Prostate Cancer Research Program.
Survivor Tent: The mission of the NOLA Bluedoo Run is to raise funds for prostate cancer research as well as awareness of the disease. With that in mind, we want to honor our prostate cancer survivors who attend the event by providing them with a special location where they can register to wear a special "survivor" running bib during the race, receive information on prostate cancer as well as complimentary PSA screenings offered at Tulane, register to win a special "survivor" gift package, and more. Please check back as the event date nears for additional details.
Awards will be distributed shortly after the race. There is no duplication of awards – Overall, Youth, Master, Grandmaster, and Senior winners are not eligible for age group awards.
The races will be electronically timed and scored. You must wear your race bib and D-tag properly to be scored. Your race bib must be worn on the front of your torso and be visible at the finish line. Your D-tag must be worn properly on one of your shoes. See Chronotrack D-Tag Instructions for details.
Preliminary results will be posted at the race site at the conclusion of the race. Full results will be published on the NOTC web site.
