Beyond the name and a few other organizational changes, the Mardi Gras / Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon is still the same race it has always been: scheduled two weekends before Fat Tuesday, Mardi Gras themed, and including a 10K, a full marathon (26 mile 385 yard), and a half marathon.

In New Orleans it is this as well – but also Twelfth Night: the start of Carnival.
