All About the 2017 Huey P Bridge Run.

Like the other races in the Louisiana Bridge Run Series, the 5th Annual Great Huey P. Long Bridge Run will be affected by construction in 2017. We will GEAUX UP – & – AROUND the bridge and Bridge City USA for our 5K (3.1 miles) on May 13, 2017 — 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. This year won’t be any different.

As we prepare for this year’s event, please share your feedback and insights on our Facebook page or I invite you to  email to Dan Bourgeois, Event Directory, at dan@runhueyp.com.

2017 FINISHERS MEDAL

Huey P Bridge Run

HERE IS YOUR 2017 HUEY P LONG BRIDGE RUN MEDAL

A special occasion calls for a special gift to all Huey P finishers-

THIS ONE-OF-A-KIND MEDAL

The 5th Annual Huey P Long Bridge Run will take place on May 13, 2017. Being our 5th year, we aren’t letting a bit of construction get in the way of our 5K. We are planning several cool features for this year’s race, and a 5th year finisher’s medal is just the beginning.

The Huey P Bridge Run finishers will sport LED blinking light medals once you cross the finish line.

So, plan to be there on May 13, 2017 to get in on this very unique and soon-to-be-coveted bling. Get registered here.

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.

No Shuttle Buses This Year — Start and Finish at the Gumbo Festival Park in Bridge City on the Westbank.

Race Day Packet Pick Up will take place from 6:30 a.m. – 7:30 a.m. at Gumbo Festival Park next to the Finish Line at:

Gumbo Festival Park
1701 Bridge City Avenue
Bridge City, La. 70094
