Big Easy Running Festival, October 31, 2021
Laissez les bon temps roulez through the Big Easy as Team Challenge hits the streets of New Orleans for the Big Easy Running Festival on October 31. Choose from either the half marathon (13.1 miles) or 5K (3.1 miles), and enjoy the sights and sounds of New Orleans as you make your way through the flat course. This race takes place on Halloween, so there will be plenty of fun costumes and more!
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’ Voodoo Music + Arts Festival is also scheduled to take place from October 29-31!
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.
