Christine Guenther's thoughts:

I ran the 5K as part of the remix challenge. I did the 5K on Saturday and the Half Marathon on Sunday. Extra bling for days!

Packet Pick Up: either at the expo on Friday or pre race on Saturday. At the expo, if you were picking up for multiple races, you were given a wrist band to claim your remix medal on Sunday after race #2. Packet pick up on Friday was with some longer lines, but quick. They really only separated into 2 lines which slowed things down some. Shirt pick up was close by and you could go explore the expo

The Start: race started at 8 AM at Lafayette Square. 10 corrals total for the 5K.

The race: takes you through part of the business district, Canal Street, Bourbon Street, the French Quarter and Jackson Square. It's an out and back type course with one water stop right before mile 2. With the wave start, it makes things less congested. Since it's so early, not many people are out. You get a quick view of the big parts of town.

The Finish: right around the start in Lafayette Square. You're met with medals, food and water. There was a brass band post race and a few vendors, but not a whole lot to do.

Overall, great quick race to see some of the highlights of town. Flat course and great race for the family to run or walk
