5:20 CLUB (NOLA)
Every Wednesday and Saturday 5:20 a.m. at Gernon Brown Gym located at the corner of Harrison Ave and Marconi Drive.
The 5:20 Club is one of the oldest informal running groups in the Greater New Orleans. Formed before running even existed, its members and associate runners consist of a diverse group of people, ranging in age from the teens to 158 or so. The group is so-named because it starts its run exactly at 5:20am, unless one of its crankier constituents gazes upon his Timex watch and decides that 5:18 is close enough.
