This fast, point to point course is a USAT&F sanctioned and certified 10,000 meters.
It runs from historic Jackson Square through the financial district, along the beautiful tree lined Esplanade Avenue to City Park.
NOTE: Entrants can check online to confirm your entry in the Crescent City Classic. Entries are not processed immediately, but are batched and processed weekly.
SORRY, lost RACE NUMBERS are NOT REPLACED ... YOU MUST RE-REGISTER.
All registered entrants may either pick up their T-shirts at the Crescent City Classic Health and Fitness Expo or on race day. Requested shirt sizes are not guaranteed entrants on race day.
Entrants will be assigned to a color group based on their recent estimated 10,000 meter times. On the application, be sure to list your expected Crescent City Classic finish time. Please give consideration to the large number of runners. Slower participants who start ahead of faster participants at the starting line create a severe hazard to the faster runners who attempt to pass, so PLEASE BE ACCURATE! Entrants not supplying an estimated time will be placed in the slowest group. If you plan on walking, you need NOT supply an estimated finish time.
SEEDED ENTRANTS & AWARDS:
Runners wanting to be seeded in the faster starting groups must attach written verification that they have run a 10,000 meter time of under 45:00 minutes within the last six months. If you do not provide written verification (i.e. a copy of printed race results or a finisher's certificate), you will not be seeded in the faster groups. Unique trophies and prize money await the overall finishers. Limited edition Crescent City Classic race posters are given to the first 500 finishers & females finishing with a race time under 45:00 minutes. You must obtain a scoring chip to be eligible for race awards.
POST RACE FESTIVITIES:
After the race, plan to enjoy road racing's greatest post-race party, complete with a free concert featuring some of New Orleans' most famous and favorite musicians.
Water, fruit, food, beer and soft drinks are provided free to all registered race participants compliments of our sponsors. For a $5.00 cover charge, friends and family will be able to join in the fun and receive the complimentary refreshments offered at the post race party.
