Finish Fest

WHERE THE RACE ENDS AND THE PARTY BEGINS

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.

CAN YOU DEJA VU?

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.
