New Orleans: This past Saturday runners participated in the 2012 Nicole Murphy Tiger run held in Audubon Park. Despite the looming storms, runners braved the conditions as Richie Bouchert took the win over Doug Fields with a time of 16:28 in the 5K race while LSUHSC’s own Kate Accardo took the women’s title with a time of 19:08, defending her title from the previous year in the process.
Shortly following the race runners would have to enjoy their beer, snowballs, and lucky dogs under the cover of tents and Shelter #10 as the storms finally arrived – providing a cooling shower for the recent run.
Proceeds from the run went to benefiting the LSUHSC Medical Student Homeless Clinics that LSUHSC medical students have run under faculty supervision for the homeless for the past 21 years.
Runners prepare to circle the park, as race time draws near.
