Following our success in other cities, this exciting new race is coming to New Orleans to give all participants close to Audubon Park, the French Quarter, and neighboring areas the ability to show off their health and wellness campaigns and run or walk a 5K of which proceeds go to Unity of Greater New Orleans - an organization established in greater New Orleans focused on providing training, wellness assistance and financial literacy to return the homeless back to normalcy.
Nestled and completely contained in Audubon Park, this electronically chip timed USATF-certified 5K Walk/Run is being held to experience fun with friends, family, locals and tourists for a great cause.
This race includes a medal and a special cooling towel for completion. Each participant receives a medal for their 5K run/walk regardless of time. Pre and post race refreshments will be offered to make sure you are fully hydrated and rejuvenated.
Where is the Start and Finish Line?
You're in luck. The start and finish line are both at the Magasin street entrance. No confusion on this route!
How do I Get There?
There is plenty of street parking at that time of the morning. But we also recommend Uber and Lyft for a quick entry and departure to the park start and finish line at the Magasin Street entrance.
