Annual 5k Run and Pancake Festival 2022

The Kiwanis Club of Natchitoches is excited to host its annual fundraising event, the 5K Color Run and Pancake Festival, on Saturday October 8th. This event will be at the beautiful NSU Collins Pavilion from 7 AM to 11 AM featuring a FREE pancake breakfast for anyone who wants one!

This event will feature a 1-mile fun run and a 5K color run with NSU Cheer and Pom Line cheering you on along the route. Students from Northwestern State and LSMSA will be excited to throw handfuls of color your way and applaud you as you go!

All funds raised for this event go toward the service projects performed by the Kiwanis Club of Natchitoches.  The Kiwanis Club is also looking forward to bringing back the Terrific Kids program this year as requested by popular demand!

Day of race registrations and donations will be accepted at the event but interested walkers and runners can pre-register at the link below. Preregistration by September 24th will guarantee you a t-shirt. There is a discounted price for High School and College students and kids under 12 years of age! There is also an opportunity to be a Couch Supporter with a donation of $25.00 – no walking or running required!

You don’t have to walk or run to enjoy free food and activities!

Come join the Kiwanis Club of Natchitoches in a beautiful morning of fellowship and fun on Saturday, October 8th from 7 AM – 11 AM at the NSU Collins Pavilion!
