Perfect running weather greeted the approximate 1400 participants at the 12th Annual Bubba Gump Shrimp Company's "Run Forrest Run 5K" held in the French Quarter. Both the first overall 5K finishers were from out of town. Samantha Cole, from Arlington, VA, set a new masters womens division course record with a time of 19:28. Eric Palmer was the first overall male finisher with a time of 16:40. He is from Monterrey, CA, where he recently won the "Run Forrest Run" 5K held there. Overall awards included Nike Sport Bands, Bubba Gump glasses and other merchandise items.

Post race festivities included live music courtesy of the band "Refugeze". Bubba Gump Shrimp Company made Shrimp Shack pasta with salad and french bread. Refreshments were also sponsored by Bud Light Beer, Michelob Ultra, Pepsi Cola/Diet Pepsi and Sierra Mist, Kentwood Springs Water, and Elmer's Chee Wees. Thanks go out to the volunteers and staff of the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company Restaurant, Children's Hospital, and New Orleans Track Club volunteers. The event is a benefit for Children's Hospital.
