The Evansville Museum’s Fifth Annual 5K Run/Walk, Toulouse-Lautrekkin’, will be held on Saturday, November 9, 2013. The race starts at 8:00 AM in front of the Museum and follows Evansville’s beautiful Pigeon Creek Greenway Passage, ending at the Centennial Gates behind the Museum. This run/walk is the perfect event for the entire family to participate; children, parents, and grandparents all have the opportunity to bring home an award.
Fifty trophies will be given away, with three going to the top runners in each of eight age groups for both males and females, and one trophy for the overall top male and female runner. Trophies will also be given away to the top ten walkers for males and females. After the race will be the Fun Run for children ages 12 and under, no registration is required for this event and all participating children will receive a custom medal.
The entry fee for both runners and walkers is $25 for early registration, and $30 for those registering after November 1, with a $5 discount for Museum Members. All proceeds from the race will benefit the Evansville Museum.
This year’s design was created by Rachel Wambach, and is a tribute to the artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and the famous Jane Avril. Participants will receive a t-shirt with this year’s design, and the shirts are also available for purchase. Registration forms are available online at http://emuseum.org/toulouse-lautrekkin or picked up at the Museum’s front desk. For more information, please contact the Evansville Museum at (812) 425-2406.
