We were thrilled to have over 400 runners along with family, friends, supporters, and volunteers join us on Saturday, June 10, for the Ripe & Ready Creole Tomato Festival Run/Walk at Crescent Park – New Orleans riverfront course! In addition to runners from across the country, participants included NOPD Cadets of Academy Class 179 and 180, running with members of YouthRun NOLA.

The 2 mile fun run started at 8:30 am and Kenneth Cooper crossed the finish line 10:23 later.  Jennifer Neil was the first ladies finisher at 13:28. All finishers received a 2 Mile Run/Walk completion Medallion, courtesy of the New Orleans Police and Justice Foundation. Full race results can be viewed here. The run/walk was followed by Creole Tomato Festival festivities, including food and beverages provided by our generous sponsors.
