Are pacers allowed? Yes, pacers will be allowed for the ultra runners starting at the mile 15ish (Louisiana Running Company) aid station, but must follow the same rules as all other participants. They are entitled to aid station supplies, food, and drinks just the same as runners. We are very lenient with the rules on our pacers. As long as they have fun and stay safe, they are permitted to help their runners in any way necessary to get you to the finish line.

Do you offer refunds, bib transfers, or deferrals? Unfortunately, no. All sales are final.

Can I change distances? Of course. You can change distances at any point up to the start of the race. If you choose to move up in distance, just pay the additional owed amount (whatever the 50m was at the time you registered - what you paid for the 50k). If you choose to move down, you must stop at the 50k finish and notify a race official. Once you go past the 50k point, you risk a DNF if you do not finish.

Parking = there should be plenty of street parking just outside the French Quarter for the 50k and 50-milers. Please be aware that parking in the French Quarter is often residential, or there are parking meters. The corner of Elysian Fields Ave and N Peters St normally has lots of open spaces, especially along N Peters. No meters or special permits or anything required. HOWEVER, they will ticket/tow you if you park where you are not supposed to, so please be extra careful.

For the Half Marathon: there is neighborhood street parking available around Louisiana Running Company, but please come early. Spaces are not always easy to find.

Drop bags? Yep! You can bring a drop bag to packet pickup or to the start line, and we'll have it waiting for you at the 50k finish line.

Packet Pickup? If you can make it to packet pickup on Friday, that is awesome. If not, then please see one of the RDs before the race to get your race armband, and then we will have your swag bag waiting for you at the finish.

Local time: 12:57 AM
