Crescent City Fall Classic COUNTDOWN:



5k Race - 8:30 am - New Orleans City Park



Held in the beginning of November, this race has multiple audiences! Serious runners can use this event as a qualifier to earn a prime starting position in the Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City Classic 10k (this is the ONLY opportunity to run a qualifying time at the 5k distance) and the Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City Fall Classic 5k encourages participation by area students.  

To ensure a clean start, there will be two staggered start times: (1) for runners attempting qualification and (2) for all other particpants.

Ranging from elementary school through college, young runners from throughout the region come for the camaraderie and competition. With age-specific prizes for everyone starting at age seven, and cash grants for those schools with the greatest number of participants, this is always a spirited event and a great introduction to running events for young runners.          #fallclassic5k
