RUN/WALK Across the MIGHTY Mississippi
on may 12, 2018 • Run for the mothers in your life • jefferson Parish
Since 2013, The Great Huey P. Long Bridge Run, a 5K run/walk, has celebrated of the majestic views provided by an historic bridge established in 1935 and revised in 2013 with the incredible widening project.
We know it’s not easy crossing The Great Huey P, but it sure is fun and its a great way to get a bird’s eye view of southeast Louisiana.
Each year, runners enjoy a professional, safe race experience and receive premiums to commemorative their crossing. We know its a challenge worth celebrating for flatlands who go vertical when competing in the 5k/3.1 mile race.
After the crossing, enjoy live performances and local dishes, like gumbo from our friends at the Gumbo Festival, served up in the shadow of the bridge.
