I currently have three trail races that I host: Red Dirt Ultra, Loup Garou Trail Run, and Chicot Challenge 100 Mile Trail Relay, all in my beautiful home state of Louisiana!
It was after a few cringe-worthy experiences at other trail races that I had my revelation - that our sport and our runners deserved better. Hence, the birth of Paix Running (paix=peace in French). Next month we are hosting the inaugural Loup Garou Trail Run on our home trail of Chicot State Park in Ville Platte, Louisiana. My volunteers and I know every inch of this trail and love our girl (we have deemed the Chicot trail female because she can be a beauty and a beast all on the same run - I'm a girl, I can say that). We are all excited to show off her beauty to all of the runners coming out there for the first time. I think my team and I are more excited than you guys are for this race!
I just unveiled the ever growing list of First Timers at Red Dirt (more details HERE) and I will be making an exciting announcement about Loup Garou in the next couple of days via video (HINT: You will want to come back.)
We will also be leading a group up to the Red Dirt trail soon for a group run, so stay tuned for more info on that here.
Phew! So much going on, and I could not be happier to share it all with you. Check back here for updates, but until then, Happy Running, Y'all! - Edie
