2015 Ole Man River Half Marathon and 5K

After touching every body of water in New Orleans, the Ole Man Half Marathon & 5K finally saw its return to the river for which it was named, the great Missisippi. In a twist, however, instead of running on the New Orleans side of the river runners traveled to the historic district of Gretna to enjoy a  skyline view of the city that most of the racers call home.

In chilly temperatures and incessant winds, Ty McCormack (former Clemson / Auburn runner) and 2016 Olympic Marathon Trials qualifier, battled the wind and solitude to win in an impressive time of 1:07:31. Local standouts Brandon Wingate and Ian Carr ran together most of the way before separating in the final miles –  each going on to earn new personal bests of 1:10 and 1:11 respectively.

In the women’s race, Kylie Kastes (Tulane swimmer turned runner), recorded her first New Orleans road race win in a time of 1:25 while Laura Aleman formely of Dominican/LSU rounded out second in 1:27.
