Celebrating its 8th year, the “World’s Most Festive 5k” returns to Downtown Baton Rouge on April 29, 2017. The Happys5000 presented by Brian Harris Mini Cooper features a fast and fun downtown route perfect for runners, joggers, or crawlers and is followed by various entertainment offerings including a costume-driven beer mile. The 5K starts at 6pm and the Beer Mile starts at 7:30.

Live music and participatory art installments are just some of the elements you will encounter. The race along with the post-race party makes for an incredibly fun evening.

The Happys5000 is pleased to work with Girls on the Run and its participants for the fourth year in a row as our charity partner. Over the past 8 years, the Happys5000 in conjunction with the Happy’s Running Club, have raised thousands of dollars for various charities.
