It’s a major commitment to train and run a marathon or a half marathon. It’s an even bigger commitment to run back to back events or to run a half in Mississippi and a marathon or half marathon in Louisiana. We have set up two great races for you to test your skills.

TRAVEL TO LOUISIANA

RUN THE COURSE - ENJOY THE CULTURE Here, in this little corner of the American South, where European traditions blend with Caribbean influences, the history is as colorful as the local architecture; the food is the stuff of legend. Haitian and African Creoles developed an exotic, spicy cuisine and were instrumental in creating Jazz and Zydeco. Throughout your run, not only do locals cheer you on and wish you the best, but they also offer you warm king cake, serenade you with great music from Elvis to Big Sam Funky Nation, and give you ample opportunities to sip a beer or Bloody Mary.

CAN YOU DEJA VU?

RUN SATURDAY - RUN SUNDAY Are you up to the challenge? Do you enjoy a shakeout run before your big race? If so, then sign up for the Déjà Vu Award and receive a coveted crawfish tray. You won’t have enough hands to carry all the mouthwatering food at the Finish Festival - like Jambalaya, Gumbo, Alligator Sauce Piqaunte - so the Déjà Vu Award comes in handy (pun intended). Purchase a VIP Bayou or Cypress package to hold your Bloody Mary or Mimosa. Learn More >>
