About This Activity

It’s a view that few ever see. The view of the Big Easy when crossing the Crescent City Connection on foot is breathtaking, as the massive span joins the east and west banks of our iconic city. At the Big Easy Half Marathon, you can take part in a new fitness tradition running throughout this wonderful city, our city, New Orleans … The Big Easy!

IT STARTS WITH THE COURSE … Join us as we cross the Crescent City Connection, run through the beautiful Garden District, pay a visit to Robert E. Lee at his famous circle, skirt past the Central Business District, historic Treme, Bayou St. John, Esplanade Avenue, Rampart Street and of course, the finish line in a park named after the greatest jazz trumpeter the world has known, Louis Armstrong.

AND ENDS WITH A FINISH UNLIKE ANY OTHER. As you approach the finish line in Armstrong Park you will be greeted by the infamous moves of the 610 Stompers and the mighty sounds of the St. Augustine High School Marching 100. And just when you think it can’t get any better, the great sounds of Cowboy Mouth will fill the park at the best post-event party in the city!
