NOMC Running Team in the Crescent City Classic

Musicians who register and run the race are eligible for $100 for playing a couple jams near the race finish. Click below to find out more & register.

Building on last year’s success of the team of musicians, health advocates, and professionals who ran the Crescent City Classic, Team NOMC is expanding this year. We are partnering up again with the Louisiana Campaign for Tobacco-Free Living, who is also working to keep the music scene healthy. In fact, that’s the slogan we will be wearing on the light-weight team jerseys: “I support a healthy New Orleans music scene.”

Those musicians who register and run the race are eligible for NOMAF’s $100 Gig Fund honorarium for playing a couple jams near the race finish where your instruments will be waiting. Last year, about a dozen musicians rallied to make some music after running the race, including bassist Peter Harris, who was among the top 500 finishers.

As an added bonus, team members will have a special invitation to come by our tent in the sponsor-village and cool down with some refreshments.

First, click here to register for the race which will start at 7:30am on the Saturday before Easter, April 23, 2011.

Once you have registered, please email us at to officially join Team NOMC. That will get you on the list of up-to-date details including race logistics, training runs, and additional related gig opportunities that the NOMC/AF organizes for a healthier music scene!
