What We Do

Fundraisers & Special Events - A RUN / WALK THROUGH HISTORY


The 18th Annual event will be held this year on Sunday, March 31.

Every year Save Our Cemeteries hosts the largest cemetery race in the United States. 

Join us for the race but also enjoy the Band, Beer and Food! Bring the whole family for this fun event.

The 1-mile and 5K courses lace through historic Metairie Cemetery, one of the most famous & historic cemeteries of the South. Established in 1872, the area was previously Metairie horse racetrack and is now a national landmark. The cemetery offers a picturesque tour of Louisiana’s history that includes the resting places of many past governors, mayors, military leaders and prominent men & women of the business, cultural, political and social life of New Orleans.

Online registration will be available soon. Check back for updates.
