About Jazz Half Marathon

This year marks the annual running of the New Orleans Jazz Half Marathon & 5K, both of which take runners on a fast, flat course through the paved streets of one of the most interesting cities anywhere in America, known around the world for its architectural, cultural and natural beauty.
