Runners joining NOTC for the 33rd Annual "The Wall" 30K and 10K encountered a not unusual blustery day atop the Mississippi River Trail. The Wall was run by many training for the Rock 'n' Roll New Orleans Marathon and Half Marathon. In that number were Brad Vollkommer winning the 30K race for the men in 1:56:58 and Grace Thacker in 2:13:30 for the women. Second place finishers were Chris Deming in 2:07:21 and Celeste Dolan in 2:14:30. Third place finishers were Michael Comeaux 2:08:18 and Jennifer Novak in 2:15:48.

In the 10K placing first were Ryan Compagna in 37:12 and Danielle White in 43:21. Carlos Zervignon and Raquel Gros were second running 38:08 and 44:55 respectively. Third place finishers were Harrison Grieb in 38:53 and Khan T Le in 49:42.

At the finish line runners were greeted with warm wrap sheets provided by Brooks, an official sponsor of the Rock 'n' Roll New Orleans. The awards presented were brick pavers with "The Wall" logo and NOTC apparel. Runners enjoyed delicious pasta from our sponsor, Louisiana Pizza Kitchen, delicious King Cakes from Baker Maid and Michelob Ultra beer from Southern Eagle Distributors. Thanks to our other sponsor Phidippides Footwear. Kentwood Springs Water and Gatorade provided refreshment at the aid stations. Also, thanks to All American Chiropractic for providing post race comfort to our runners.

Special thanks to Road Runners Club of America, our volunteers, and the New Orleans Track Club Board of Directors for their assistance in the production of the event.
