Richard Newcomb Memorial Father's Day Race

NOTC Grand Prix Series Race

2 Miles and Kids' Half Mile

Sunday, June 21, 2020

Audubon Park, New Orleans

In accordance with federal, state, and local guidelines that prohibit large scale events from happening for the foreseeable future, the Richard Newcomb Memorial Father's Day Race will not occur in 2020. While we are unable to gather as a community to celebrate our fathers and father figures on June 21st, we encourage you to stay active and enjoy family on this date. Please remember to follow the recommended safety guidelines set forth at that time. The New Orleans Track Club thanks the Newcomb family, club members, event volunteers, participants, and community partners for their continued support during this difficult time. Your health and safety remain our organization's top priority.

Race Policies


All New Orleans Track Club race registration fees are nonrefundable and nontransferable under all circumstances, including, but not limited to, cancellation of the event or of your participation, or change in the date, nature, or format of the event. An event may be canceled or changed due to severe weather or other factors that threaten the safety of participants, staff, or volunteers. Race bibs cannot be transferred to another participant.


The use of personal music devices is strongly discouraged at this race. To enjoy all that our race has to offer and for the safety of all participants, the New Orleans Track Club encourages a headphone-free environment during the running of this race.


At our races, NOTC demonstrates our commitment to an inclusive athletic experience by welcoming race participants, volunteers and guests to use:

  • Single-occupancy gender-neutral (unisex) facilities; and
  • Use of multiple-occupant, gender-neutral restroom facilities with lockable single occupant stalls.


The New Orleans Track Club strongly recommends against the participation of baby strollers/joggers in road races. The reason for this recommendation is that the inclusion of strollers in races increases the potential for injury to race participants and children.

The NOTC has no objection to and does not discourage the safe and prudent use of strollers or baby joggers in individual training situations. If allowed in a race, stroller or baby joggers or similar devices should be started in the back of the runners and walkers.


Dogs should not be brought to this event for the safety of all participants and volunteers.
