Huey P. Long Bridge Run

Sat October 21, 2023 Bridge City, LA 70094 US Directions

Course Information











There is a 90-minute course limit to complete the 5K race.  This equates to a 29:00 min/mile pace, which is a comfortable walk. If you are unable to continue at this pace you will be helped into the SAG wagon and will be transported to the finish line.  The bridge MUST be opened on time and runners not meeting the expected pace will not be allowed to continue on their own.

The Huey P. Long Bridge Run will feature mile markers at every mile and two well-supported water stations.


*All courses are very well marked.  There are mile markers for each distance event, directional signs for course splits, and TURNAROUND signs for course turnarounds.  Course splits and course turnarounds will be manned with an operations staff member who will typically be making announcements on a megaphone.  Course turns are indicated with traffic cones and usually (not always) have police units, volunteers and/or staff members.  Traffic on courses is managed by our law enforcement partners, but no roads are promised to be closed to all traffic.  Runners should be aware of their surroundings: the course, applicable signage, vehicles, staff, volunteers, and police officers.
