Vampire 5K New Orleans...CHASE.OR.B­E.CHASED?!K

Come out and join us for the first annual Vampire 5K New Orleans! The run begins at dusk and ends under the moon. Participants may register as either a Vampire or Citizen. Citizens are in white in one location and Vampires are in black in another. The paths will converge at an unknown location and then the hunt is on! Vampires will try to "convert" citizens by pulling both white garlic flags they will be carrying while running through fog and red powder zones. Participants will then “celebrate eternity” in the post-run Red Dusk after-party with music, red colored beverages, fun awards, and make-up artists on-hand ready to “transform” any willing citizens into new Vampires. The V5K benefits The Mission To Hear Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing hearing aids to under-resourced, hearing impaired children and adults. Register at

      I signed up today to be a vampire. If you want you can join our team (it's cheaper if you join a team) or you can go as an individual (citizen or vampire). We can always meet up at the after party as well.

    OK! So I am going to this because I don't leave until next Monday for training. If you wish to be a vampire you can join our group, Blood Sucking Machetes, and save some on the registration. If you are going to go, register today before the price goes up tomorrow. Since I am a vampire I will be at the vampire area, but we can all meet up/mingle after at the after party. As always, you can reach me on my cell (it will be above in the "How to find us" section) and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have!

    I think I have to go to training that week, so I more than likely won't make it, but it should be a good time it seems.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
