Race Directors: New Orleans Track Club Board

The 23rd running of the NOTC Race at the Greek Festival attracted a record crowd of almost 1500 for the 1 Mile and 5K races. We were rewarded with a beautiful sunny day for the Friday evening race.

Each registrant received a Greek Festival commemorative award and had the option of receiving the newly designed Greek Fest T-shirt.

Prize money was awarded in both races which attracted New Orleans finest runners. In the 1 mile race Pat Gavin (running for Louisiana Running Company) and Michelle Hymel (running for Southern Runner) took the money with respective times of 4:24 and 5:30. A new course record was set in the women's 5K race by Sarah Skotty (running for Southern Runner) with a time of 17:33. The men's 5K winner Sean Fitzwilliam ran a PR of 15:50. Sammy Mapes was the men's 5K masters winner and Liz Stolz (running for Hard, Inc.) was the women's 5K Masters winner. Mark Koch and Lilli Brown took the 5K Grandmasters awards.

Thanks to the Board of Directors of the New Orleans Track Club and to our member volunteers for working so hard to make this race the success that it was. Also, thanks to sponsors Abita Beer, Chee-Wees, Kentwood Springs Water, RC and 7-Up and to the USDA for allowing the use of their property for the race site. Special thanks to the Greek Festival Committee for hosting us.
