10th Annual New Orleans Superhero 5K & 1K Virtual Race


Every child needs a hero, but abused children need Superheroes!

Dust off your favorite cape and join us on the Lafitte Greenway for the 10th Annual Superhero Race on Sunday, October 22nd, presented by Chalmette Refinery!

All proceeds from the race benefit CASA New Orleans, a nonprofit that fights for the rights of abused and neglected children in St. Bernard and Orleans parishes. At CASA, we believe that every child needs a hero, but children who have been abused or neglected need superheroes. Whether you run in a cape or just your favorite t-shirt, your participation is a heroic show of support for CASA and the children it serves.

Superheroes can run, walk, or fly in our 5K race. Superheroes-in-training (12 yrs and younger) have their very own 1K race.


Prizes will be awarded for:

- Top finishers in each race and age bracket

- Best costume - individual, group, and pets

- Most money raised - group and individual


Registration details:

- $30 Online Registration

- $40 On-Site Registration

- $15 1K (Kids only)

- $20 per person for a Superhero Squad of 5 or more


We are thrilled to be back in person this year (although you can still run a virtual race if you would rather), so make plans to stick around post-race for an afterparty at Parkway Bakery and Tavern! Need to fly to your next event? Pre-order food and take it to-go! (Order up to a week in advance.)
