The 3rd Annual Smoothie King Big Easy Running Festival is on for Saturday, November 19th, 2016

Premier Event Management LLC, the leader in endurance sports production, is proud to announce the 3rd annual Smoothie King Big Easy Running Festival.

Scheduled for Saturday, November 19th, 2016, the Smoothie King Big Easy Marathon begins on the west bank of the Mississippi River, crosses the Crescent City Connection, tours New Orleans and ends at Champions Square. The 5k will begin and end at Champions Square, and we'll close out as always with a fantastic after-party concert featuring terrific live entertainment from the Champions Square Stage.

We’re starting off with $1.00 registration again, and curler lady is still freaked out about it.

shockedladyYep, we’re opening registration again on December 15th at the unbelievable entry fee of just $1.00! Yes, that’s right: just $1.00! Both Big Easy Running Festival events will use a tiered-pricing structure that starts with $1 entry slots and goes up from there. Once the limited slots at each price are sold, the price increases by just $5.00, until the regular price for the event is reached. But those cheap entries go REALLY fast, so you have to be quick to grab one when registration opens!

Finally, we’re supporting Second Harvest Food Bank again this year, by asking all athletes to bring a canned or other non-perishable food item on race day.

Registration will officially open on Tuesday, December 15, 2015 at 10:00am CST for the 2016 Smoothie King Big Easy Running Festival. Set a reminder NOW!
