Crescent City Fall Classic
Held the second Saturday in 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! In addition, the CC FALL Classic encourages participation by area students. Ranging from the 6th grade through college, young runners from throughout the region come for the camaraderie and competition. With age specific prizes for everyone starting at age twelve, 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.
All registered runners will receive an official Fall Classic Race T-shirt as part of their entry fee & can pick up their t-shirt after the race at the Post-Race Festival on the Practice Track.
All runners will also receive Bib numbers with B-tag timing chips attached to the back. DO NOT REMOVE this if you want to be timed. Please wear your bib number on the front of your shirt on race day. Lost bib numbers will NOT be replaced. You must re-register. You can pick up your bib number on race day morning, starting at 7:00am, inside the Practice Track or from Early Number-Pick up: date/time TBD.
