Race Day
 
What should you expect on race day?
Seize the Day is about supporting those we love with epilepsy and raising awareness. Walk, run, or roll your way across the finish line because most of all we hope you have FUN! And dont plan on running out after you finish the race because we have music, food, and games! Youll be able to meet other people living with epilepsy too!  Pennington Biomedical Research Center has limited seating, so we do recommended brining outdoor chairs or blankets to sit on. We do allow tents as well, but we ask that you email infoepilepsylouisiana.org so we have keep track of how much space we need to reserve. 
You are welcome to use wheelchairs or strollers on the race course, but please note that a small section of the 5K is not paved. Please reach out to infoepilepsylouisiana.org  or call 225-298-5499 with any questions about accessibility.
