Crescent City Classic

Runners — both trying to keep up with the fastest Kenyan racers and in costume — will be lining up by the thousands Saturday morning for the Crescent City Classic's 10K jaunt from Jackson Square to City Park. A post-race party with food, drink and music follows the race near Tad Gormley Stadium. The party is free to race participants and admission is $5 for the general public. Registration is in-person-only this week and area locations include GNO Cyclery, Southern Runner, Academy Sports & Outdoors, Phidippedes (Metairie) and Legends Sports World (Northshore). Or register at the Crescent City Classic Expo at the Sheraton (10 a.m.-8 p.m., Thu.-Fri., March 19-20; 500 Canal St.). Visit the Web site for complete details. Registration $30. — Will Coviello
