Note 1: Only consider running this route during the day. Note 2: This route is recommended only for those who have a run partner. Rampart Street is busy with traffic and some of the neighborhoods are sketchy. Please see our St. Charles Avenue route for singles and those desiriing a more convenient route. This route follows much of the popular Crescent City 10K race route & will bring you to City Park, one of the 10 largest urban parks in the U.S. To shorten the route, consider taking a taxi to the park and running home OR just running down Rampart and part of Esplanade

* Our mileage Starts/Finishes at Canal & Rampart Streets, on the edge of the French Quarter

* Run along the French Quarter (NE) on Rampart St

* Turn L at Esplanade Ave

* Continue straight on Roosevelt Mall Drive and veer L past Gormley Stadium (there is a practice 400 meter track to the east of the stadium if you want to do intervals)

* Turn R on Marconi Drive and cut across the lawn to return to Zachary Taylor Drive

* Turn L on Zachary Taylor Dr, then a quick R on Golf Dr which will bring you back to Esplanade and the park entrance

* Head back the way you came

Total = approx. 9 miles round trip (shorter distances possible)
