35th Annual Crescent City Classic 10k

35th Annual Allstate Sugar Bowl
Crescent City Classic 10k
Saturday March 30th 8am
The Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City Classic is a world class competition that combines all levels of athletes from walkers to runners to world class elite racers. Its the perfect race distance and great fun for all participants. The Classic is both physically challenging and a great New Orleans tradition!
I will be running the Classic with some of my favorite blogger friends Mindy, Heather, Shannon, and Stefanie. I am so excited about this race. Some of the great things about the CCC is the Free Health and Fitness Expo on Thursday (3/28) and Friday (3/29) at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans,  601 Loyola Avenue from 10am till 8pm. The Health & Fitness Expo features exhibitors showcasing the latest in running apparel, shoes, exercise equipment, nutritional and wellness products, fitness services, and much more! I am especially excited to see my BFF the great Bart Yasso. Yeah hes kind of a big deal! Oh and I may or may not have gotten to run with him a couple times...
If you want to here some great running stories with some amazing running tips. Oh and he is hilarious to listen too. You need to come to the free expo and check him out. Here is his schedule for the weekend...
Thursday: 3pm and 6pm seminars
Friday: 8 am shakeout run and 11am and 4pm seminars.
I wish I would be there for the shakeout run. I was able to run with him at the Runners World Festival back in October and it was AMAZING! If you will be in town trust me you will want to go run with him!
The course itself will start at Champion Square (Loyola and Poydras) and in City Park. This year they are unveiling a new course for the 35th anniversary, I have ran races in New Orleans before and this course seems to be great for anyone to race at any level. Check out the course map HERE.
On raceday they will have busses running from City Park to the start line at Champion Square. Here is the raceday schedule...
5:30 a.m. Buses begin running from City Park (at Beau Bassich Cricle) to start area (Champions Square)
7:45 a.m. Final Announcements, Dignitary Welcome and the National Anthem

11:00 a.m. Marc Broussard and Papa Grows Funk resume playing

They will also have a corral seeded start this year for the first time. This will make it much easier to race the CCC. The race begins at 8am and each corral will start every 3 minutes.
Being that this is the 35th annual race, they have gorgeous finishers medals and have a designed a special tshirt for this year. I got a sneak peak of both at the Azalea Trail Run this past weekend.
After the race, the post party will be in City Park from 8:30 to 1pm. It is open to the public and is free for the runners and $5 for the public. Come down and enjoy great food, Michelob Ultra and enjoy great music from
Papa Grows Funk and Marc Broussard
I hope to see you all at the expo and the finish line.
