Q50 Full Moon Trail Run – 2011 Results

Last weekend, the Q50 Full Moon Trail Run took place on the trails within Fountainebleau State Park, located on the northern shores of Lake Pontchartrain in southern Louisiana. In a common theme for this time of the year, the five mile adventure started after the sun retired for the day (8:45 pm start).

The social cause for this event was STARC – a group that works to improve the lives of the mentally disabled.

The unique twist – it is a two-person team run. Male, Female, or Coed.

Start together.

Finish together.

Have fun together.

Over 40 teams did just that!
