Crescent City Classic

Since 1979, the Crescent City Classic 10k has been a New Orleans tradition. The race, which takes place every year on the Saturday before Easter Sunday, is produced locally by the Crescent City Fitness Foundation, a not-for-profit 5013c entity. People of all physical abilities participate, including world-class runners, joggers, walkers, wheelchair athletes, kids in strollers, and even those with rolling beer coolers.

The starting line of the 10-kilometer course (6.2 miles) is Downtown New Orleans in front of the Caesars Superdome. From there, participants (many in costume) run through the French Quarter, all the way up beautiful Esplanade Avenue to New Orleans City Park where they cross the finish line under the cool, shady, ancient live oak trees. Register here.

Pre-race warm up in Champions Square begins at 7AM; Race Begins at 8AM.
