With top runners from throughout the world, the annual Crescent City Classic 10k has grown to become one of New Orleans’ largest 10k races.

Organized by The Crescent City Fitness Foundation, the race is open to anyone who wishes to participate. It is a favorite with local runners and walkers from the New Orleans area, as well as world-class athletes who view this race as one of the top races of its kind.

The Route

The race typically takes participants throughout the city from the Central Business District over to historic Jackson Square and the French Quarter, then past the elegant old homes of Esplanade Avenue, and on to the ancient moss-draped oaks of City Park for a post-race celebration.

Post-race Festival

At the end of the route awaits a celebration with some of New Orleans' favorite music as well as plenty of food and drink. The party following the race will be open to the runners' families and friends for a small admission fee.

Top times receive trophies and cash prizes. Limited edition Crescent City Classic race posters are also typically given to the first 500 finishers and females with a race time under 44 minutes.

The Expo

On Thursday, March 24 and Friday, March 25, the Crescent City Classic will host a two-day Expo including free food and drinks, chef presentations, guest speakers, running gear and more!
