Date to be announced

Bonnet Carre Spillway, Norco

As a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting restrictions on large public gatherings, the New Orleans Track Club must postpone the 33rd Annual Spillway Classic Trail Run. When local authorities once again permit events of this size, we will produce this historic race at a later date in 2020. Please stay informed by following the New Orleans Track Club's official Facebook page along with social media accounts on Twitter and Instagram @runNOTC.

Online registration is on hold pending the rescheduling of this event.

Awards

To be announced.

It is the responsibility of athletes that finish in the awards to note any necessary corrections on race day. If an error is discovered post-race we'll be happy to correct your results and update the website accordingly. However, if you do not inform us of this issue before your award is given out we will no longer have an award to give to you and we can't remake awards.

Timing and Scoring

The races will be electronically timed and scored. You must wear your race bib and B-tag properly to be scored. Your race bib must be worn on the front of your torso and be visible at the finish line.

Preliminary results will be posted at the race site at the conclusion of the race. Full results will be published on the NOTC web site after the race.

Official race results are scored by gun time. Net (or chip) times are published for informational purposes only.

Race Policies

Refunds

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.

Headphones

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.

Bathrooms

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.

Strollers

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

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