The New Orleans Ultra Marathon is the first urban ultramarathon in one of America’s most amazing cities. You start at Jackson Square before the sun comes up and traverse some of the most iconic and historical neighborhoods winding your way through our great city.

Phil will be “running” this race for the second time, completing the 50 mile course October of 2021 in his first ever ultra marathon. This is where the inspiration for Running for Dreams came from. “Somewhere on the lonely streets of Gentilly because I was dead last, I was just trying to get to the finish line. I had just seen my family and friends for the last time before the finish line which was at least another hour and half away. As I left them at the last aid station I couldn’t help but feel loved, supported and blessed. I think I cried for about 6 blocks. Then it just came to me, I’m going to start a foundation to help kids who have lost a parent to cancer.”
