Route, Weather for Crescent City Classic

After all the Good Friday crawfish is digested, the Crescent City Classic is set to get New Orleanians sweating in the streets to get them hungry for Easter Sunday. To make way for the thousands of runners that will head out for the 39th annual 10K, the City is shutting down streets from the French Quarter to City Park. 


Starting at midnight, parking will be restricted on the racecourse, which includes Esplanade Ave., all of Poydras St. (from Loyola to Lasalle), and Decatur and N. Peters Sts. in the French Quarter. Even mule-drawn carriages and Jackson Square will have the morning off until the race is over. Any leftover vehicles will be subject to towing. At 5AM, NOPD officers will divert all traffic on Poydras St. from S. Claiborne Ave. to Loyola Ave. 


Race participants are encouraged to park in downtown long term lots and use the shuttle system organizers of the Classic have arranged. 


The weather is expected to be partly cloudy, with a high of 83 degrees and a low of 67 degrees later in the evening, according to the National Weather Service. A chance for stray showers or thunderstorms is possible (20 percent). 


Here's the full route:
