Gladiator Rep Run Logo


The Gladiator Smoothie has 22.5 grams of protein in a half serving, which is why you’ll be completing 225 total reps along the course, and 45 grams of protein in a full serving, which is why today’s race is a 4.5k!

Course Descriptions:  Please note that the Rep Run is a 4.5k or 2.8 Mile race that starts under the inflatable arch, on the plaza level of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome near Gate D. 

  • The first lap is just running (no reps). You will run down the ramp towards Dave Dixon Dr., U-turn around the truss-archway, then run up and down the stairs at Gate C.
  • After the stairs, take a left towards Poydras St, where you will U-turn around the truss-archway and back up the other ramp to the Plaza level.
  • Continue right, towards Gate A, then run down the right-side of Ramp A, staying on the platform along Sugar Bowl Dr., until you U-turn and run back down the Poydras side of the platform to the other side of Ramp A.
  • Once back up on the Plaza level, continue Right, around the backside of the Dome then loop towards the Smoothie King Center where you’ll pass by the Start/Finish line arch for your 2nd lap.
  • The 2nd lap is the same as the 1st, but there will be 9 stations where you will have to stop and complete a set number of reps of each exercise.
  • Each of the stations will have a volunteer holding a sign that says what the exercise is and how many reps you need to complete before running to the next station, as well as an Ochsner Fitness Center trainer, who will demonstrate the exercise.
  • To see exact locations of these 9 stations, please reference the course map, located at the Registration Tent.


The family Fun Run / Walk is 1 mile and will begin and end in the same location, here at Gate D, and follow the same course as the Rep Run, minus the stairs at Gate C and Ramp A.
