Nearly 20,000 runners from age 12 to 86 took to the streets of New Orleans this weekend to participate in the 9th running of the Humana Rock ‘n’ Roll New Orleans Marathon & ½ Marathon. With a renewed focus on the core pillars of bringing fun to the run with great music in a community environment, runners of all athletic levels enjoyed the sights and sounds of New Orleans.
Some of New Orleans’ best live bands performed on improved band stages along the route, interspersed with cheerleaders and themed water stations. Participants moved along to more music than ever with all new mile-markers that included speakers and race pacers who ran with mobile speaker packs.
The musically themed road race concluded with local favorites, Soul Rebels and Cowboy Mouth taking to the stage as co-headliners for the Toyota Rock ‘n’ Roll Concert Series, getting runners and their families to their feet in celebration of the day’s accomplishments.
