Are you a runner, walker or jogger that is new to the West Bank of New Orleans? We’ve got just the place for you.
BestBank Track Club
The BestBank Track Club has been around for almost 25 years, growing from a small group of friends in Algiers and Terrytown to the current group that meets to run, walk and socialize twice a week. Affiliated with the Road Runners Club of America, they run a 3 mile trek on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 pm, starting from the parking lot behind the Family Dollar at Woodland and General de Gaulle in Algiers. They meet again on Sunday mornings at 6:30 am in the parking lot of Holy Cross College on Woodland in Algiers.
Not just a track club, it’s a fun group that plans activities throughout the year, such as crawfish boils, tubing trips and swim parties. $15/year dues cover the cost of beverages at the weekly runs, but can you really put a price on the chance to make new friends that share your love for running? Members participate in local runs, marathons, triathalons and have an active facebook page to keep everyone informed about what’s happening with the club.
No matter whether you are an experienced runner or a newbie, everyone is welcome. Don’t worry about being left behind, because the group waits for the last runner to come in before leaving for the evening.
