Rock ‘n’ Roll New Orleans Marathon & 1/2 Marathon
Laissez les bon temps roulez through the Big Easy as Team Challenge hits the streets of New Orleans for the first time. Music makes up the heart and “sole” of this event. Live bands will be performing a variety of music from alternative to soul along the course. The bands set the tempo for this running party, where runners and spectators alike will be “dancin’ in the streets” to these mini-concerts. Train with us all fall and into the start of winter to be ready for this February 5, 2017 race.
After the race you will want to sure to explore New Orleans many major attractions, from the world-renowned French Quarter and Bourbon Street's notorious nightlife to St. Charles Avenue (home of Tulane and Loyola Universities, the historic Pontchartrain Hotel, and many 19th-century mansions), to Magazine Street, with its many boutique stores and antique shops.
New Orleans is also world-famous for its food. Be sure not to leave town before trying a beignet and a muffuletta sandwich. And for seafood lovers the étouffée, jambalaya and gumbo are not to be missed.
