COURSE DESCRIPTION – We are working on the pre and post race plans now and will update the course information and start/finish information when we have it finalized.

COURSE TIME LIMITS – There is a 90 minute course limit to complete the 5K race. This equates to a 29:00 min/mile pace, which is a comfortable walk. If you are unable to continue at this pace you will be helped into the SAG wagon and will be transported to the finish line. The bridge MUST be opened on time and runners not meeting the expected pace will not be allowed to continue on their own.

The Huey P. Long Bridge Run will feature mile markers at every mile and two well-supported water stations.

Since 2013, The Great Huey P. Long Bridge Run, a 5K run/walk, celebrates of the incredible widening project of this historic bridge.

Each year runners enjoy a professional, safe race experience and receive premiums to commemorative their crossing.

After the crossing, the event hosts live performances and dishes up local cuisine in the shadow of the bridge while trains cross, blow their horns and engineers wave to attendees.

It’s not easy crossing the Huey P, but it sure is fun and its a great way to see the city and southeast Louisiana from a bird’s eye view. Be sure to bring your family and friends, and make it a great day to “GEAUX OVER IT!”.
