Deadline Alert! Crescent City Classic 10k price increase!

The top 500 finishers receive a collectible poster. This one is from 2010.

Do you like to run in warm, muggy conditions? Is dodging strollers yours favorite cross-training? Would you like to run smack-dab into a walker - or ten!- this Spring? Do you feel like getting a parking ticket for parking next to 5000 cars parked in the same illegal place? Then the Crescent City Classic 10k is for you! Drawbacks aside, the CCC is New Orleans' most popular race, and it can be fun...if you like all of the above things, plus confusing shuttle bus lines. Lots of people wear bunny ears since it is the Saturday before Easter and it is really the last race in the area before the temps grow too hot for decent racing.
This year, the Classic is stepping it up by actually providing all entrants with a scoring chip, as opposed to previous years when only seeded entrants were chipped (or you could buy a chip for $5. Seriously).
Why am I already talking about the Classic? Because tonight at midnight the price increases! Register today for $20; tomorrow the price increases to $25.
Just thought I'd give you a heads-up. Happy New Year! Enjoy your celebration tonight!

  1. I cannot imagine how big that race is now, when I ran it in college it was HUGE! I remember one year I was in the port-o-potty when it started, I bolted out of there and had to bunny hop around all the strollers/walkers/etc.

    A big race every now and then is fun though. I think the latest race I ever did there was a 5K that the Bubba Gump restauraunt put on.... the Run Forest Run 5K. ;-)
