Saints fans invited to celebrate the start of the 2019 season by participating in the New Orleans Saints Kickoff Run presented by Chevron.

The New Orleans Saints and Easy Day Sports announced today that online registration for the 2019 SAINTS KICKOFF RUN 5K presented by Chevron is now open at http://www.saints5k.com.

The eighth annual 5K (3.1 miles) race will take place on Saturday, September 7, two days before the Saints open the regular season on Monday night, hosting the Houston Texans. The SAINTS KICKOFF RUN 5K is an extremely popular event, with over 6,500 people participating annually.

The SAINTS KICKOFF RUN 5K presented by Chevron begins at 7:30 am, with a half mile Kids Fun Run sponsored by Raising Cane’s following at 9:30 am. Gumbo and Sir Saint, the club’s mascots will be in attendance to cheer on runners.

This year, due to security requirements by SMG, the venue and facilities management company of both the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and Champions Square, the race will now start on the 50-yard line on the field, so all runners go through security screening prior to the race starting. Following the race, participants can enjoy live entertainment, products provided by Coca-Cola, Community Coffee and Gatorade, a beer garden and jambalaya in Champions Square.

All participants will receive an official race shirt presented by Entergy and a finisher’s medal.

Saints Owner Gayle Benson. “We are proud to host this dynamic running experience that celebrates the start of the 2019 season and illustrates our team’s commitment to the health and wellness of our fans.”
