The 12th annual Children’s Hospital Jazz Half Marathon & 5K will not occur in 2020


2019 Jazz Half Marathon, Relay, and 5K participants can view their results here.


At Children’s Hospital New Orleans, our top priority has and always will be taking care of kids. We are committed to keeping our patients, their families and our staff safe as we manage the emerging global public health situation around COVID-19 (coronavirus).

Following the lead of other large fall events and festivals in our city, Children’s Hospital has made the decision to not hold the 12th annual Jazz Half Marathon & 5K in October.

Instead of crossing the finish line at one of our hospital's signature fundraisers, you will be helping to flatten the curve of this coronavirus pandemic, which will in turn save the lives of the most vulnerable in our city, state, and region.

Although we won’t be running together, we encourage you to be active and walk or run a 5K on what would have been race day – October 31, 2020 – in honor of the children treated at our hospital and primary care clinics each year.

We all know there is no community quite like New Orleans and no race quite like the Jazz Half Marathon & 5K.

We are resilient and will get through this the only way we know how – together.
