New Orleans 44th Annual Mardi Gras Marathon ~ February 24th, 2008

Run or walk at the 44th Annual New Orleans Mardi Gras Marathon. The course will wind its way through the beautiful streets and neighborhoods of NOLA. You begin at the Louisiana Superdome. It will take you through the French Quarter ~ down Bourbon and Royal Streets. Travel St Charles Avenue to Audubon Park and in the Garden District. Then, down the beautiful Bayou St John to City Park. Does any other race have such a historic & gorgeous course?!? Both the marathon and half marathon end back at the Superdome.

They are also asking for area high school bands and music groups to participate by performing along the course and cheering on the runners/walkers. How fun!
