Join us for the Fourth Annual Jazz Half Marathon & 5K on Saturday, October 27, 2012 and help support the Cancer Program here at Children’s Hospital. This year’s races will be televised live on NBC-affiliate 6 WDSU, and will start and finish at the beautiful Lafayette Square Park in the New Orleans CBD. Runners will run past such landmarks as the New Orleans Convention Center, Louisiana Superdome, and the statue of Robert E. Lee at Lee Circle. From Lee Circle, runners will run up the Grand Dame of New Orleans streets, St. Charles Avenue, passing the fabled mansions of the Garden District, Loyola and Tulane Universities and through the green expanse of Audubon Park. Coming back downtown, you’ll run past the World War II Museum, Contemporary Arts Museum and Ogden Museum of Southern Art before finishing the race at Lafayette Square. Along the way, you will be treated to a wealth of New Orleans music by local bands.
