    Was in New Orleans for work and was fortunate to have this available. Packet pick up at the hotel (Renaissance Arts Warehouse District) was convenient but small. Not really an expo. Shirt was really nice (unisex sizing), nice color, comfortable material. Race morning the start was delayed by 30min because of rain resulting in people having problems getting there (shout out to race organizers for not stressing people out by forcing an on time start). The start line was not well marked (but follow the masses…). Course had to be detoured due to Hard Rock Hotel falling down a few weeks ago. Start out with a 1.5mi out and back to the Super Dome and then another long straight away out to Audubon Park where you run a lap and come out to return around mile 9. To say this was flat is an understatement. SOOOOOO flat. I train and live at altitude so a combination of sea level and flat was a dream. Plenty of water on the course. Finish line is at a long straightaway so you can see it and not waste effort on turns (LOVE this kind of finish). Medal was decent. Food was not great–no bagels/pretzels/cookies/chips/chocolate milk. There was red beans and rice, jambalaya or hot dogs and beer. Good bands playing. Awards took FOREVER–winners were done by 9:30 even with late start and they didn’t do awards for anything including the 5K till nearly 11. It was freezing by then and standing around forever was no fun. Be aware they only do first place age group, masters, grand masters, seniors and overall. This was a disappointment. Pictures are not free and there weren’t really photographers on course, just at the finish.
