ABOUT THE NEW ORLEANS TRACK CLUB

The New Orleans Track Club is a membership organization composed of and administered by runners and walkers. The mission of the NOTC is to produce and promote running events both as a competitive sport and as one of the best athletic activities for achieving physical and mental fitness. Membership is open to all, fast, slow, and in-between, who share our passion for the sport.

The NOTC was founded in 1963 with the purpose to promote running in the New Orleans metro area. Since that time the Club has grown to over 2000 members including runners, walkers, and wheelchair athletes. The NOTC is a member of the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) and USA Track and Field Association (USATF).

The NOTC is a non-profit organization. Officers and members of the Board of Directors are elected annually. Most of the work is performed by club volunteers. In this way we maintain nominal entry fees to cover costs at races. Each year the NOTC contributes thousands of dollars to charitable organizations. In addition, the NOTC supports local lower, middle, and high school cross country programs.
