Running Sucks: A Crescent City Classic Op-Ed


by Trey Monaghan 

Saturday is the Crescent City Classic, a race I have run more times than I can remember.  I plan to run it yet again, and I truly don't know why. I'm not running it to set a personal record,  or to impress a lady, or even to feel good. I'm just running to run. Over the past year I have become addicted to the run, and tomorrow is just another chance to feed that addiction.


Today in New Orleans 3.30.13


Today, the Crescent City Classic runs their new route, Infield Fest brings visitors on to the infield during races, there’s an Easter keg hunt Uptown, and more. On this day in 1999, the Neville Brothers played “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” and performed “Valence Street.” Now, more to do this Saturday.


Crescent City Classic Revamps Start, Finish


New Orleanians like to make everything a party, including their races.  From serious runners to lackadaisical walkers to costumed joggers pulling a keg in a radio flyer, the Crescent City Classic attracts all kinds.  Much of the race and the good-time mentality have remained the same for decades, but the 10K run celebrates its 35th year on Saturday with a new route, new rules and a revamped post race party.


Fair Grounds Announces Inaugural Infield Festival


Just when you thought we had a festival for everything, the Fair Grounds dropped a bomb by announcing the inaugural Infield Festival. Today at the Winner’s Circle, representatives from Fair Grounds and the Crescent City Classic announced full-scale fest to be held on March 30, the 100th birthday of the Louisiana Derby, and local rockers Cowboy Mouth are headlining the event.
