The Great Huey P Louisiana Bridge Run Returns To Its Grandeur With Full Access

We are pleased to announce that on May 12, 2018, we are able to Geaux Over It!. This year runners can enjoy the beautiful views and challenges that come with a run/walk for 3.1 miles he 2017 bridge run was modified to go under and around the bridge due to sandblasting and maintenance to the center structure, the train bridge. We are fortunate to be able to celebrate the establishment of the bridge in 1935 and the revision of the widening of lanes in 2013 with a good run on Mother’s Day weekend Jefferson Parish.

All Three Bridges in the Louisiana Bridge Run Series are Clear for Race Days

Since 2012, the Louisiana Bridge Run Series has offered runners and walkers the opportunity to cross the Mighty Mississippi in April, May and June. However in 2015, 2016 and 2017 each bridge had construction, forcing each race to modify its course.

This year, the 2018 running of the United Way St Charles Bridge Run, the Great Huey P Long Bridge Run and the Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City Connection Bridge Run will offer the full experience.

Complete all three events for a fourth Bridge Run Series Medal awarded in June.  More Info >> LOUISIANA BRIDGE RUN SERIES
