The Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City Classic 10k will take place on Saturday, March 31, 2018 – 8:00 am.

The Classic is New Orleans’ (and the region’s) premier 10k road race, and one of the oldest 10k races in the nation. For 39 years, it has combined world class competition, amateur participation and great fun for all participants. Starting in 1979 with 902 participants, the Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City Classic has grown to become the preeminent fitness event in Louisiana. This Easter Weekend Tradition is now, along with Mardi Gras and Jazz Fest, one of New Orleans signature events.

Charity and Fundraising

The “Run For It” Program is the Official Charity Program of the Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City Classic. The goal of the “Run For It” Program is to raise $1 million annually and serve the Greater New Orleans area needs. Each year, the Crescent City Fitness Foundation selects local charities to support and partner with for the 10k race, by donating 100 charity bib numbers (guaranteed race entries) to each Charity Partner for the following year’s Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City Classic.

Official Charity Partners recruit and form teams of 100 charity runners/walkers, who can commit to raising a minimum of $200 for their charity by race day. Official Charity Runners receive various perks and incentives for joining the program, including a personal online fundraising page. All of the money raised will be donated directly to and benefit our selected charity partners.

The River Parish Disposal Team is so proud to support this great event. We will provide Portable Toilets, Dumpsters, Hand Washing Stations, disposable boxes, and clean up crews. Good luck and we see  you at the finish line.
