Upcoming Group Runs

Saturday, August 25th  7:00 am.  Louisiana State Arboretum Trails
4213 Chicot Park Road, Ville Platte, Louisiana

  • Meeting at the front gate, ready to run by 7 am.  There are bathrooms and a water fountain at the trailhead.  The whole loop is 4.7 miles but can be shortened with cut across trails.  There are maps available at the trailhead.  You are responsible for your own nutrition and hydration for the run.  Mildly technical (rooty) in spots, and some climbs.  Walker friendly, but no pets allowed in the arboretum. Human families welcome though.  :-) 
Saturday, November 17th 7:00 am   Red Dirt Group Run / Camping Trip
Lotus Camp, Kisatchie National Forest  Provencal, Louisiana
  • We are heading up to the Red Dirt trail this weekend to run the trail and camp. The weather should be perfect! I will need a 35 mile training run, so I will be doing the whole loop, but you can choose any distance you would like by doing an out and back, or just stay back at the campsites and enjoy this beautiful park! We generally camp in Lotus Campground, right on the trail. More details to come as it gets closer. Mark your calendars. Families welcome.
Any questions about these, email Edie at

Group Runs!

We are beginning to schedule our fall/winter group trail runs, and I wanted to keep you guys updated.  Here are the two we have so far - one to the Chicot State Park Arboretum and one to the Sandstone (Red Dirt) Trail.  As we add more, I will add them here, but in the meantime, if you are on Facebook, follow the Paix Running page to get the latest news!
