    I know it is early…we are planning on coming to NOLA for JAZZ fest and we always like to run a 5K when in town. Do you plan on having this 5k in 2016? The weekend of 4/30-05/01?

    I would love to consider running this race. I’m worried that registration would be closed on race day and I’d be traveling from CO. Is there no other way to pre-register to ensure racing that day?

      Yes. You sure can. The registration page link will be up within the next week or so. I can send you an email when it’s ready so you can register and ensure your spot in the race.
