Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City Classic Announces 2021 Race Schedule

RunforitNEW ORLEANS – Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City Classic officials have announced the full slate of events for the 2021 calendar year. The newly released schedule features a combination of virtual challenges and in-person events.

Notably, this year’s Crescent City Classic 10k scheduled for Sunday, April 3, will be a virtual event for the second consecutive year out of an abundance of caution for public safety during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Officials currently plan to host two in-person events in November and December of this year as city and state COVID restrictions allow.

The calendar includes the inaugural virtual “Mardi Gras Parade-athon” as well three returning virtual events from 2020 – “Liberty Road Challenge” in partnership with The National WWII Museum, “Bourbon Street Barathon” in partnership with the Louisiana Hospitality Foundation and “Me Time Challenge” in partnership with Ochsner Health.

The full schedule of events is as follows:

  • Jan. 6-March 31: Mardi Gras Parade-athon (Virtual)
  • April 3: Allstate Sugar Bowl Crescent City Classic 10k (Virtual)
  • June 6: Liberty Road Challenge (Virtual)
  • August 15: Bourbon Street Barathon (Virtual)
  • Nov. 1: Me Time Challenge (Virtual)
  • Nov. 13: Allstate Sugar Bowl Corporate Classic (In-Person)
  • Dec. 11: Allstate Sugar Bowl Celebration in the Oaks (In-Person)

“We’re excited to announce our full slate of events for 2021,” said Crescent City Classic Race Director Eric Stuart. “While there’s still some uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, our plan consists of virtual events for the first three quarters of the year, and we hope to return to normal with in-person events beginning this November.”
