This fast, point to point course is a USAT&F sanctioned and certified 10,000 meters. It starts on Poydras at Loyola Ave near the Superdome, and runs you right through the financial district, historical Jackson Square, tree lined Esplanade Avenue to beautiful City Park.
Entrants will be assigned to a corral based on their estimated 10k times, which you will provide when you register online. Please choose your accurate pace, as slower participants who start ahead of faster participants create a severe hazard to the faster runners who attempt to pass. Entrants not supplying an estimated time will be placed in the slowest group. All participants who plan on participating with a stroller MUST select the last walking group: 90+ mins for the safety of themselves and others (no jogging stroller allowed).
