The Tradition Continues • 8th Annual Race

Since 2013, The Great Huey P. Long Bridge Run, a 5K walk/run, 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, but it sure is fun to cross the Huey P on enjoy  a great 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 flatlanders who go vertical when competing in the 5K/3.1 mile race.

After the crossing, runners have enjoyed live performances from Imaginary Frenz and local dishes, like Jambalaya Girl’s delicious jambalaya served up in the shadow of the bridge.
