Join us for NOLA's favorite holiday fun run! The Allstate Sugar Bowl Celebration in the Oaks Run/Walk gives locals the chance to participate in one of the most festive holiday events in the country! This 2-mile course takes participants through New Orleans City Park during their annual Celebration in the Oaks Light Display, when the park is decorated with over 500,000 lights! The day is filled with hot cocoa, pictures with Santa, a holiday costume contest, and much more!

The race, which begins in the late afternoon, is especially popular among families. Many of those running and walking this event do so with strollers or children right by their side. After the race, participants can enjoy free refreshments and complimentary entry into the walking tour of the beautifully decorated Botanical Garden, Storyland and Carousel Gardens, before the gates are open to the general public!

the Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City Classic 10k road race is held in New Orleans on the Saturday before Easter Sunday each year. The Classic is locally produced by a not-for-profit 5013c entity, the Crescent City Fitness Foundation, and is a great way to get in shape while having fun! Both runners and walkers of all abilities are invited to participate in the race.

The Classic is both physically challenging and a great New Orleans tradition! The 10-kilometer course (6.2 miles) begins in Downtown New Orleans in front of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, runs participants through the French Quarter, and then all the way up beautiful Esplanade Avenue to New Orleans City Park.

During Easter weekend, the events surrounding the Crescent City Classic promise a jam-packed weekend. We host a two-day Health & Fitness Expo, which is free and open to the public, as well as throw one of the best post-race parties in road racing hosted by Michelob Ultra, and complete with live music and local creole cuisine!

What better way to celebrate the start of summer than with a great evening run across the iconic Crescent City Connection! At four miles and rising to a height of more than three-hundred feet over the river, the Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent Connection Bridge Run gives participants a breathtaking view of the city's skyline at sunset.

Join us to run or walk the most unique course in the South. Participants start on New Orleans' "West Bank" and cross the Mississippi River via the Crescent City Connection Bridge. Ending along the river in the Warehouse District on the "East Bank", the Bridge Run is a favorite among both serious runners, young professionals, and partiers alike! Experience the skyline and enjoy an evening at a post-race party only the folks from the Crescent City Classic can throw!
