AWARDS

THE GREAT HUEY P LONG BRIDGE RUN organizing committee proudly awards the 1st, 2nd and 3rd male and female finishers in the following:


HISTORY

Since 2013, The Great Huey P. Long Bridge Run, a 5K run/walk, has celebrated the incredible widening project of this historic bridge, enhancing its place as a featured icon on city’s skyline since 1935.

Each year runners enjoy a professional race experience and receive premiums to commemorative their crossing.  The event hosts local performances and cuisine in the shadow of the bridge while trains horns and engineer waves complement the experience.

Be sure to bring out your family and friends, and make it a great day to “GEAUX OVER IT!”.
