The 7th annual Humana Rock 'n' Roll New Orleans Marathon had over 23,000 entrants from all 50 states and 32 countries, but at the end of the day it was Canadian Meggan Franks who finished first among females and Michigan's Geoffrey Burns who was the first male to finish. Both Burns, who finished the race in 2:24:58, and Franks, who finished with a time of 2:51:50, each took home $500. 

Also taking home $500 prizes were Emil Dobrowolski (1:04:17) of Poland, who was the first man to finish the Half Marathon and Neely Spence Gracey (1:14:20), who was the first female to finish the Half Marathon.

Sunday's race raised a total of $1.6 million which will go towards charity.
