The Great Huey P. Long Bridge Run
Saturday, May 3, 2014 at 8:00 AM (CDT)
GEAUX OVER IT!
The Great Huey P. Long Bridge Run, a second annual 5K race and run/walk, celebrates the recent 2013 widening project of this historic bridge. As a featured icon of the city skyline since 1935, the Huey P. Long Bridge has undergone a $1.2 Billion renovation, an event best-celebrated with a fast and festive race.
Runners and walkers will make this exciting crossing of the wider-than-ever bridge while reminiscing old times on the Mississippi River. Bring out the family, and be the first to say, “I ran the new Huey P”.
PACKET PICK UP
Packet pick up and late registration will take place under the bridge where Jefferson Hwy & Clearview Pkwy meet.
Participants must present a government issued ID to pick up race packet. If a minor is registered a parent or legal guardian must be present to sign waiver of release.
PROXY PACKET PICK UP
Proxy Packet Pick-up (picking up a packet for someone else) the process is as follows: a PRINTED photocopy of that participants photo ID or printed copy of their registration confirmation from Eventbrite is required and an acknowledgment of proxy pick-up will need to be signed. (Digital copies, photos or picture messages are not acceptable). This copy will be retained until the completion of the event weekend as proof of packet distribution.
There are no exceptions to this rule. If you wish to have your packet picked up by proxy the photo copy of your drivers license will be retained as proof of pick up.
Participants can register on Friday and Saturday during Packet Pick Up. Online registration will close beforehand. Warning: waiting until day-of to register could result in a missed opportunity. The Huey P Long Bridge Run is a race with shuttle buses to the start, therefore we need to support those who register before day-of and get them on their packets on on a bus to the start. We will do our best to support NEW day-of runners, but we strongly recommend that you register online or at the Friday packet pick up.
Shuttle service will bring runners from the Eastbank to the starting line on the Westbank from 6:00am until 7:30am.
