The Greater Baton Rouge Lit Run

Saturday November 18th, 2023

Baton Rouge, LA

Official Website


The "LIT RUN", hosted by the Family Project Inc., is a 5k Run (1-mile Fun run)  held right after sunset in beautiful Downtown Baton Rouge on the Riverfront. Participants are strongly encouraged to get "LIT" in their brightest running attire. Along with donning themselves in lights and glow sticks, runners, and walkers will enjoy a foot tour of the new and historic sites downtown, visit vendors, and enjoy music, all while supporting a deserving cause. The catalyst powering the "LIT RUN" looks to illuminate the dark circumstance in literacy in our parish as an issue. Proceeds from the event will summer literacy initiatives at underperforming schools. The aim is to increase literacy rates, and test scores and assist students in unearthing the worlds of knowledge that can be discovered through reading.
