HUEY P. LONG BRIDGE RUN

GEAUX OVER IT!

RACE

Congratulations Bridge Runners

What a beautiful day May 7, 2016, turned out to be for the Huey P Long Bridge Run! We appreciate your participation, and we hope you and your family/ friends enjoyed the race-weekend experience. We will announce the opening of registration early next year, and hope you consider returning again for the 5th Anniversary Race on May 6, 2017 — once again, the day before Mother’s Day.

We were lucky to have such a great turn out, a new venue for the post-race party, incredible food and beverage options provided by Abita Brewing Company, the Gumbo Festival and Jambalaya Girl. And a special thanks to Academy Sports + Outdoors for their support each year with the packet pick up, locations and gift cards. And lets not forget our guys from FRESHJUNKIE RACING who have been integral in race course management and event logistics.

We welcome your feedback and insights and invite you to send us an email to race@runhueyp.com.
