LPO Symphony Run/Walk

2 Miles

Thursday, May 7, 2020

Lafreniere Park, Metairie

Benefiting the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we regretfully must cancel the LPO Symphony Run & Walk scheduled for May 2020. All pre-registered participants already signed up for the event received an email on April 15th regarding refunds. When government officials once again permit large events, we will share details via email and on the official NOTC Facebook page. The health and wellness of New Orleans Track Club members and event participants is always our primary mission. Thanks for your understanding and support during this difficult time. Please stay safe and stay home so we can look forward to seeing you at an event in the very near future.

The Symphony Run/Walk is in conjunction with the free outdoor concert staged at Lafreniere Park.

The LPO Symphony Run/Walk is open to all runners and walkers, NOTC members and nonmembers alike.

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 D-tag properly to be scored. Your race bib must be worn on the front of your torso and be visible at the finish line. Your D-tag must be worn properly on one of your shoes. See Chronotrack D-Tag Instructions for details.

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 Premium

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.
