Want a fun and brag-worthy way to burn off all that king cake and booze you’ll be consuming this Mardi Gras season? Rock ‘n’ Roll is a fun race for all levels, from the elite athlete to the tutu-wearing, beer-chugging walker. So, whether you’re doing it for the glory, for the medals, or for the free shots and mimosas along the route, Rock ‘n’ Roll has something for everyone—from those who want to PR to those who just want a PBR.
And if your lungs, knees, or pain threshold simply won’t allow you to go a whole 13.1 or 26.2 miles, Rock ‘n’ Roll New Orleans also offers a 10k race that day and a 5k through the French Quarter. Teyva Sammet, race spokesperson for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Series, says, “With a marathon, half marathon, 10k, and 5k, there truly is a distance for everyone. This race is also a great one to sign up for because of all our races, it has the longest time limit [seven hours max for the full marathon] and the course is very flat, so it is great for beginners and people wanting to take it easy.”
