The Inaugural New Orleans Ultramarathon will take place Saturday, October 19. Participants will choose between a 50-mile and a 50k course, and will be given a generous start time. Both events will start in Jackson Square, with the 50-milers finishing in the same location, and the 50k'ers finishing in City Park, on the steps of the New Orleans Museum of Art.
BOTH events start at Jackson Square -- 700 Decatur St New Orleans, LA 70116
50 milers = finish in the same location. Cutoff is 13 hours, at 6:30pm.
50k'ers = finish on the steps of the New Orleans Museum of Art (City Park). Cutoff is 9 1/2 hours, at 3pm.
The course will be finalized and posted in the coming months, but will likely be 100% city road, pavement, sidewalk, and running path. You will be given turn by turn instructions to bring along with you, but the course WILL also be marked with arrows conveniently spray painted on the ground beneath you. Markings will be abundant and sufficient, but it is highly recommended you bring the printed directions with you as well.
