Reginelli's Volunteer
5PM; Reginelli's; Pretty easy volunteer situation - this is a canned beer stop. Just make sure bedlam doesn't ensue and answer any questions regarding next stop, prohibited conduct, homestead exemptions, gas grills. You'll get a limited edition volunteer tshirt out of the deal.
Sold Out Ended $0.00 $0.00
Quill's Volunteer
Show up at about 5 and be ready for a pretty big rush starting at 6:15. Beer pouring and serving is the name of the game. This is the first draft stop and we hope to have some long-time barathoners over there to give you a hand. As always, special edition volunteer tshirt sweetens this fun deal.
1 Registration Ended $0.00 $0.00
Patois Volunteer
Show up at about 5PM. Probably the toughest stop in recent years - but also the most talked about. Be ready to do some serious pouring when hordes of folks skip Quill's and head straight here from Reginelli's. You'll EARN your limited edition volunteer shirt and have plenty of stories after your job is done!
2 Registrations Ended $0.00 $0.00
Dos Jefes Volunteer
By the time they get to Dos Jefes, Barathoners are in a "good mood". This can be a jam, but this is where things start slowing down a bit. Our regular Dos Jefes beer wenches are out of town for this one, so we need some reliable fill-ins for 2013. Make this the best stop - volunteer limited edition tshirt makes the work worth it.
3 Registrations Ended $0.00 $0.00
FandMPatioBar Volunteer
Show up at about 5:15PM. This is a memorable spot from which to volunteer - race day logistics make it a little tricky, but it's probably the one spot that has remained a constant over the course of the years. Your limited edition volunteer tshirt awaits you . . .
Sold Out Ended $0.00 $0.00
Repeat Performers
No-fee exclusive pre-registration lasts until the New Year and entitles you to special training gear gift; mailed in early 2013 in advance of Mardi Gras. PLEASE DO NOT REGISTER ANYONE USING THIS OPTION UNLESS THEY PARTICIPATED IN 2012.

31st Tchoupitoulas Barathon

plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose

Other than the average length of the participants' shorts and a couple changes in bars, this thing hasn't changed much since 1983. Simple concept. You run or walk (or something) 6 miles, you visit 6 bars, and you drink 6 cold beers. You can do it fast, slow, something in between, you can improvise, and there are really only a few basic rules.  

when?

May 10, 2013: pre-registration closed at 11:55PM; no tshirts and other extras for those not pre-registered

May 16, 2013: packet pickup (for those preregistered) at Le Bon Temps Roule (5PM-9PM); La Cocinita food truck, beer specials, never-before giveaways, and free admission to Soul Rebels Brass Band concert afterward

May 17, 2013: packet pickup (for those preregistered) at Le Bon Temps Roule starting at lunchtime (11AM); La Cocinita food truck and more beer specials

Late registration starts at 4PM at Le Bon Temps. 

Race begins at 6:05PM sharp! Make sure you have a full beer (we'll give you one) for the start.

Oysters shucked after the race.Beer specials and La Cocinita food truck will meet your needs. 

Awards begin in the back bar at 8PM. 

Watermelon sacrifice sometime before 9PM. 

Band begins after watermelon sacrifice. 

Go home when you're no longer any fun. 

what?

Already told you. 6 miles, 6 bars, 6 beers.

1. LE BON TEMPS ROULE (4801 Magazine)
2. REGINELLI'S (741 State) 
3. TJ QUILL'S (7600 Maple) - now called "the Annex"
4. PATOIS RESTAURANT (6078 Laurel)
5. DOS JEFES UPTOWN CIGAR BAR (5535 Tchoupitoulas)
6. F&M PATIO BAR (4841 Tchoupitoulas)
-finish down Bordeaux toward Le Bon Temps (don't cross Magazine)

Visiting the bars in this order, drinking your free ABITA BEER at each bar, and getting to the finish line gets you the coveted FINISHER'S KOOZIE

Afterward, some weird old guys will shout into a megaphone and make you do things that you'll regret for a while, but if you're one of the "winners", you can expect a custom-crafted metal creation from local artist LUIS COLMENARES. These awards have gone over so well that the idea has been jocked by other clubs and races. 

DIRTY SOUTH/PURPLE MONKEY DESIGNS will assist in a new look for the shirts this year. Guaranteed - creative and a must-have.

Last year we gave you a teaser with a Vic 'n Nat'ly print. This year we have Vance Kelly on board doing a play on the "6 6 6" motif. Vance does a lot of artwork for metal bands and events - he's one of the best. Everyone will get a digital print of Vance's 2013 Barathon poster. 

Bottom line - a very good band and a new approach toward tshirts for 2013. Get on board.
