Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City Fall Classic Returns as Virtual 5k November 5-8

The Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City Fall Classic is going virtual and calling all runners and walkers from across the New Orleans area for the annual run Thursday, November 5 through Sunday, November 8. For the first time in the event’s history, the event is going virtual. Participants will be able to complete the classic City Park course or create a 5k route of their own. Proceeds and Donations from Virtual 5k will Go Directly to New Orleans City Park. The annual 5K race will still serve as the first and only qualifying race for next April’s Crescent City Classic 10k, which organizers hope will be held in person. Qualifying times at the 5k distance are as follows:

  • “A” Group: 17 minutes, 30 seconds
  • “B” Group: 17 minutes, 31 seconds to 20 minutes
  • “C” Group: 20 minutes, 1 second to 22 minutes, 30 seconds
  • “D” Group: 22 minutes, 31 seconds to 27 minutes

Registration for the Crescent City Fall Classic is open now for $35 for general entrants and $30 for all military members. This year, all entrants will receive the 2020 Fall Classic T-shirt, a virtual race bib and a finishers medallion that doubles as a no-touch tool for opening door handles, using touchscreens and more.

“The Fall Classic is a great race for competitive runners, walkers of all ages and even though it’s going virtual, we’re still proud to continue the tradition,” said Crescent City Classic Race Director Eric Stuart. “We’ve provided a suggested route through beautiful City Park, but now runners can run any 5k route that they choose.”

The Fall Classic is the next run in the annual Crescent City Classic Race Series. In the past, the Fall Classic has served as a grant program for selected schools and nonprofits, but this year, a portion of entry fees and all donations will go directly to New Orleans City Park.

The Crescent City Fall Classic began in 1986. This will be the 35th edition of the popular New Orleans 5K. Registration for this year’s Fall Classic will close at 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, November 7.
