The Humana Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon fills the streets of New Orleans every year and is part of a series of Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathons nationwide. During the race participants wind their way around downtown and finish at City Park. Popular local bands are stationed
along the route to give participants a boost as they pass. This years headliner is the Preservation Hall Jazz band. This year's festivities begin on February 9, 2019 with a 5K before the big marathon on February 10, 2019 that also offers a half marathon
and a 10k. The New Orleans series usually draws in runners from all over the country because of its flat, less-challenging terrain and its hospitality. To register for either of the races, you can fill out the registration form here
