COURSE

Just approved. Its up to the bridge, around for a view, then back down to Bridge City. The Start and Finish will be at the Gumbo Festival Park -- where we held the post-race party last year. #GeauxUpAndAroundIt 

SUPPORT

The bridge will be blocked to traffic during the race to ensure the safety of all runners/walkers. A water station and port-o-potty will be positioned within the course for convenience. Spectators will not be allowed on the bridge during the race, but will have safe areas to cheer runners as they descend the structure and head for home.

FINISH

Runners/walkers will hit the afterburners for the home stretch into the Finish Line chute. A professional finish line structure, music, spectators and volunteers cheering you in.

Lets Get Ready for 2018

Like the other races in the Louisiana Bridge Run Series, the The Great Huey P. Long Bridge Run will be on the bridge.  We will be able to GeauxOverIt for our 5K (3.1 miles) on May 12, 2018 -- once again, the day before Mother's Day.

Each year, we have been lucky to have a great turn out, incredible food and beverage options provided by Abita Brewing Company, the Gumbo Festival and Jambalaya Girl and great music from local bands.
