The New Orleans Exercist: Run for it

Posted By on Fri, May 29, 2015 at 5:20 PM


Each week this summer, the New Orleans Exercist brings you news and events for active living in the Big Easy. This week, the Eat Local Challenge gears up. Plus: your chance to find out if you really could run the Crescent City Connection faster than you can drive across it at rush hour.

• This year’s Eat Local Challenge kicks off on Monday (June 1). For a $30 registration, participants receive a t-shirt, discounts at several local food purveyors and bragging rights. A long list of events includes home brewing and insect frying (mmm, crunchy) as well as a group bike ride and weekly “Get Fit” meet-ups. Visit for details.

• CBD yoga powerhouse Reyn Studios (725 Magazine St., (504) 522-3525; sees your Eat Local Challenge and raises you a 30-Day Fitness Challenge. Fitness Challenge participants receive $5 off their Eat Local Challenge registration, 20% off a one-month pass to Reyn and an invitation to a kickoff yoga practice and party at 5 p.m. Sunday (May 31). Whoever attends the most workouts at Reyn during June receives a prize from local food distributor Good Eggs.

New Orleans Track Club hosts its 6th annual All-Comers Track Meet at St. Martin’s Episcopal School (225 Green Acres Road, Metairie) at 7 p.m. on four Fridays in June and July, starting next Friday (June 5). Anyone of any age can compete for free and there’s water and Gatorade. Upcoming meets are June 26, July 10 and July 31.

• The Crescent Connection Bridge Run is coming up next Saturday (June 6). Just four miles long and held at the cool sunset hour of 7 p.m., even the casual jogger can take advantage of the once-a-year opportunity to kick the cars off the road and enjoy the view from the CCC at speeds of less than 60 miles per hour. Registration is $30 in advance, $35 the day of the race.
