Friday, May 27, 2012, 7:00 PM
Wisner Blvd, New Orleans, LA
Race Director: Justin Gilberti
The 24th running of the NOTC Race at the Greek Festival attracted about 1200 runners from five states for the 1 Mile and 5K races. We were rewarded with a beautiful sunny day for the Friday evening race with temperatures dipping just in time for the start of the race. Each registrant received a commemorative koozie and a technical t-shirt.
Prize money was awarded in both races which attracted top in-town and out-of-town runners. In the 1 mile race Cullen Doody ran 4:29 and Ali Edwards 5:25 to claim the top prizes. The men's 5K champion was Adam Hoogevard in 15:41 and the women's champion was Charlotte Everhardt in 18:40. Wade Wootan and Stacey Roberts were the Masters winners in 18:49 and 20:52 respectively. Kenny Mire and Word Backstrom were the Grand Masters winners in 18:57 and 21:29 respectively.
Thanks to our member volunteers for working so hard to make this race the success that it was. Also, thanks to sponsors Abita Beer, Kentwood Springs Water, RC and 7-Up and special thanks to the Greek Festival Committee for hosting us.
Proceeds from the race go to NOTC scholarships awarded to graduating high school seniors and to Team in Training Leukemia/Lymphoma.
