We would like to welcome the St. Jude's Jungle Garden 5k as a sponsor of the 2016 Veterans' 8k!   This race is run on the grounds of the beautiful Jungle Gardens on Avery Island.  We have a great time at this event every year and we are happy to have them as a part of our Veterans' 8k!  Click their logo for more information on this great race!

We are proud to announce the Zydeco Marathon as a sponsor for our 2017 Red Dirt Ultra!  This is a top notch marathon held in the heart of Cajun country, Lafayette, Louisiana.  If you are looking for an excuse to experience Cajun hospitality first hand, here it is!  As someone who has both run this race and volunteered at it for the last couple of years, I can attest to it being a first class event, and a great experience for everyone involved.  Click the logo for the website.

We would like to extend a HUGE thank you to our tremendously talented friend, Christina Gravish, for sharing her creative skills with us and creating the Red Dirt logo.  We love it and can not wait to see it on the shirts!

Red Dirt Update!  

We are very excited to welcome the Evangeline Area Council Boy Scouts, Troop 224 and Team RWB to the Red Dirt family!  They will be manning Aid Station #1 on race weekend.  This will be a great mix of youth and enthusiasm and experienced athletes with Team RWB.  I have to admit - I am a little jealous.  Nothing would be better for me than coming around a corner to see a bunch of Boy Scouts when I am working hard during a race.  Big THANK YOU to our scouts and veterans for taking on this challenge!!

Also, the medals and buckles are in production!!!  As soon as I have one in hand, I will post pictures.  I know you will love them!
