Jennifer Zenuch's thoughts:

This is a fun New Orleans 5k along the lakefront. We brought the whole family out for this one to enjoy the miles, food, and fun. This race is so well done by RUNNOTC. There's a half mile for the kids and they even pulled out extra medals from last year to give to the kids so they got a medal too. That was a HUGE deal to my two boys and it's these little touches that keep us coming back.

- Super simple packet pickup the day of the race.
- Very nice out and back course along the lakefront.
- Abundant parking at the race start.
- THAT medal! It's a crab AND a bottle opener. And this is just for a 5k! LOVE.
- Great, super soft race shirt with a fun design. I actually wear this shirt often.
- So much great food after. I had beer, and snow-ball popsicles, and jambalaya and there was plenty more other stuff too. Amazing line up of vendors.
- THE POST RACE PRIZES. Seriously. SO MANY DOOR PRIZES!! My son walked away with $300 last year. This year we won some free boxing classes. It really is fun to see if your number gets drawn.

- None!

- So. Many. Bridges. ....ha. This is not your typical flat as a pancake New Orleans race. Several overpasses/bridges along the race route made for some tough running with the jogging stroller. But I really loved the challenge! Nice to mix things up.

I would definitely recommend this race if you're in the area or local. It's a good one!
