- RACE DAY
BIENVENUE! Welcome to the Louisiana Marathon - a running festival with runners from 50 states and over 36 countries who share a passion for our culture and our fast, flat and festive courses.
Stick around for the best Finish Fest on the bayou. Enjoy gumbo, jambalaya, étouffée, duck confit and couchon du lait (to name a few dishes offered) while dancing to local jazz-funk-zydeco performances. Rates increase next month.
Looking for an exciting way to get the whole family active? Join us Saturday, January 16th for the annual Louisiana Kids Marathon.
Our mission is to instill running as a part of a healthy lifestyle in our kids. Getting regular exercise is an important component, one incorporated into our motto: RUN+EAT+DANCE+LAUGH.
There are several ways for your little runners participate - #Geauxkids
It's the best Finish Fest on the bayou. When runners cross the finish line on Saturday and Sunday, the Finish Festival kicks it into high gear. Open to the public and featuring mouth-watering Louisiana cuisine and jazz-funk-zydeco performances, runners and spectators are treated to the best our state has to offer. And wash it down with Louisiana's-own Abita brews - with several craft beers on tap.Learn more about the Finish Festival >>

Runners who finish the Louisiana Quarter Marathon or 5K on Saturday and then cross the line of the Louisiana Marathon or Half Marathon on Sunday, receive the coveted Déjà Vu Award.
Common in many seafood restaurants and home boils, the crawfish tray is a rite of Spring. This one, however, is a trophy that only a few earn. It’s a symbol of dedication and preparation. #GeauxStrong.
