Full schedule of events



The Classic is set for 8:00 am.  The race will begin on Poydras St. near Loyola Ave. in Downtown New Orleans and end in New Orleans City Park near the New Orleans Museum of Art.  On race morning, jump on a bus from City Park or show up at Champions Square wearing your bib number and simply match the color of your number to the color of your assigned corral to find your starting position.  Get ready to run (or walk) one of the most scenic courses in one of the most unique cities in the country.   Our 6.2-mile course leads participants from downtown New Orleans, through the French Quarter, all the way up Esplanade Ave. to beautiful City Park.

STREET COLUSURES: Beginning at 7:15 am, the entire race course will be closed. The Start area will reopen as the last walkers complete the start at approximately 8:45/9:00 AM. Each section of the course will reopen as those last in the event complete the course. All participants will be off of the course by 11:30 Am and at the time streets will be open to normal traffic. 


After the race join us at the best post-race festival in road racing!  The Michelob Ultra RaceFest takes place inside City Park, at the new Festival Grounds, rewarding participants with free refreshments and live music until 1:00 pm.  The Michelob Ultra RaceFest is free for runners and $15 ($20.00 on race day) for anyone else who would like to attend (children 10 yrs and younger can enter for free).  Tickets can be purchased online when registering, at the Expo, or at the Reunion Shelter in City Park on race day.
