Virtual Friends’ Fest 5k

Friends of City Park is excited to announce our 2nd Annual Virtual Friends’ Fest 5K Race. 

What is the Virtual Friends’ Fest 5K? It’s a way to safely experience the beauty of City Park and stay active with the camaraderie of Friends of City Park members and supporters. 

Participants will register through our online race registration platform. The registration fee of $30 includes a race bib and a finishers medal. 

Runners must complete the 5K route of their choice or use our route in New Orleans City Park during the week of June 19-27. After you have completed your 5K route, submit your official time, and you will receive your Friends’ Fest 5K medal by mail.
