Party up with us on Wednesday, March 4 for Youth Run NOLA’s 10th Birthday Party at Capulet Bywater to kick off the week’s fun! Free food, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, silent auction, raffle, friends and fun. Whether it’s sequins and sneakers, casual vibe, or straight from work, come as you are and enjoy a non-running opportunity to celebrate our 10 years strong!
Then on Saturday, our unique 5.04 kilometer (3.1 miles) route through Marigny/Bywater is back and a great way to get back on your health game right after Mardi Gras. Over 1200+ youth, families, and community members will come together to walk/jog/run/dance through one of the most scenic neighborhoods, and enjoy a post-race festival including live entertainment from DJ Jubilee, free food and drink, like Big Easy Bucha, Urban South beer, Who Dat Vodka, Blue Runner beans, and community-health organizations.
Check out race day photos from last year HERE and plan to join the fun in 2020!

What time does the race start?
The race begins at 8:30am, and come early to ensure time to get across the bridge (at 2400 N. Peters) and into Crescent Park! Plus, you won’t want to miss warming up with Magnolia Yoga at 8:00am and Sweat 2 That Beat at 8:10am! And plan to stick around with DJ Jubilee from 9:30-10:00am!
