Great Mississippi River Levee Run Report

Great Mississippi River Levee run

The Bling

When I knew I was going to be moving to New Orleans, I immediately began looking for new races to run.  There was a cool race called the Rouge – Orleans and it was a relay from Baton Rouge to New Orleans that was about 130 miles long.  I thought wow what a cool race. Well it was canceled for a variety of reasons and I kinda let that thought of running this race slip away.

After living here a while, I connected with Louisiana Ultra Runners and got to know these crazy runners. I found out that Jerry Sullivan, one of the members used to do the Baton Rouge to New Orleans run as a fat ass run around Thanksgiving every couple years or so.  Well it so happened that this was the year for the Great Mississippi River Levee Run,  a crazy 130 mile fat ass run.
