About This Activity

This is the third annual SAINTS KICKOFF RUN presented by Chevron. The event has quickly evolved into a citywide tradition as fans welcome the start of the NFL season by taking to the streets of New Orleans to celebrate football while engaging in a healthy and charitable activity. 

This event is a 5K run/walk and will take place on Saturday September 6. Participants will have the thrill of finishing the race on the 50-yard line at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, the home of the beloved New Orleans Saints. The team mascots and Saintsations cheerleaders will be cheering on runners at the finish line.

The SAINTS PLAY 60 Fun Run will be a half mile run for children ages 4-12. Proceeds will benefit the Louisiana Children’s Museum and the New Orleans Recreation Department.
