Fundraisers and Special Events - A Run/Walk Through History
Every year Save Our Cemeteries hosts the largest cemetery race in the United States.
Join us for the race but also enjoy the music, beer, and food! Bring the whole family to 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.
