New Roads Pecan Classic Event Announcement - New Virtual Race Date from April 6 - June 30, 2020

On behalf of the New Roads Pecan Classic Race Team, I am excited to announce that for our 10th anniversary we have transitioned to a virtual race.  This unique experience will give all registered participants the opportunity to run/jog/walk either a one mile or four mile course of their choice, receive the official New Roads Pecan Classic shirt and continue our tradition of promoting family, fun, health and fitness throughout our community.   

So how does a virtual race work?

Step 1. Register for either the one or four mile race on our website: https://runsignup.com/Race/LA/NewRoads/PecanClassic  If you have registered prior to the virtual race transition, you will have the option to stay in the race or withdraw for a refund. 

Step 2. Record your selected race results on any running app (Map My Run), watch (Garmin) or electronic file BEFORE the deadline.  Your last day to submit your run is Tuesday, June 30th.

Go to the park, run on a treadmill or throughout your neighborhood; the choice is up to you. Last date to submit results will be June 30th, 2020.

Step 3. After your run, submit your results (time and distance) on our designated Google form (you will receive an email with submission information).  If you do not have a Google account, simply send your results (e.g., picture of time and distance on watch, screenshot of your running app) to our timer, Bertha Lanthier (blanthier54@aol.com).

You can run your selected race as many times as you want, but you are only allowed one submission.  So, if you run in April and then have better results in June, submit your June time.  Please send videos/pictures to our marketing director, Aimee Moreau (aimeeblsu@gmail.com) so that we can share your accomplishments on social media.  

After all results have been submitted, we will announce our overall and division winners and provide information regarding pick-up for this year’s official race shirt and awards.  Please continue to check our website and Facebook for details regarding our virtual race. 

Many thanks to our sponsors and runners!  Your understanding and support during this unprecedented time has been unwavering.  We hope that the annual New Roads Pecan Classic provides a sense of normalcy to you and your family. 

Best of luck,

Jason Chauvin

New Roads Pecan Classic Race Director

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to the new event date.  Even if you don't want to participate in the Virtual Race you will still get this year’s official race shirt at a future date TBD.  Thanks for your patience!

We understand. We hope you can join us next time.
