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). In addition, the Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City FALL Classic 5k encourages participation by area students.
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 eight, 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.
