The phrase déjà vu is a French term that literally means “already seen.” The phenomenon of déjà vu is to have the sensation that an event or experience currently being experienced has been experienced in the past, when in fact it hasn’t.
For this reason, we have created the Déjà Vu Award for those runners who see the finish line two days in a row. This finisher award is given to all runners who complete the Saturday 5K at the Louisiana Marathon and finish the Marathon or The Half at the Louisiana Marathon.
HOW TO REGISTER
Sign up for both races — might have to do this 2x instead of all-at-once — online. We will track and cross-reference participants in the database and you can confirm registrations with getmeregistered.com or at The Expo at packet pick up.
WHAT IS A CRAWFISH TRAY
The Déjà Vu Award is a seafood tray — a.k.a. a crawfish tray — common in many restaurants and home seafood boils. This one in particular is designed by The Louisiana Marathon, and is ideal for serving up great Louisiana Seafood — especially, boiled crawfish, crabs and shrimp.
RUN THE 5K + THE MARATHON OR THE HALF
The Louisiana Marathon® could be sold out January 19, 2014; caps are set for 2,000 marathoners and 5,000 half-marathoners. As a multi-race format, there is something for everyone. Runners and spectators will enjoy local music & entertainment along the course. Louisiana may be the birthplace of America’s only indigenous art form – jazz, but the state also hosts a diverse range of musical styles from country, gospel and blues to hip hop, rockabilly and rock’n'roll. You can expect to be entertained along the course by an incredible wealth of musical talent. When you come to Louisiana, don’t miss the music.
Friends, family and curious spectators will line up along the 26.2 miles of roadways filled with inspiring sights and sounds to cheer on the many that chose to run. The Louisiana Marathon® course features a fast, flat, runner-friendly path through the lakes, along the river, around downtown, on the university campus and in historic neighborhoods.
Join the fastest growing race distance in the country. Custom designed Louisiana Half Marathon medals will be awarded for all finishers and Top Finisher Gear will be 3 deep in each division for the Louisiana Half Marathon.

THE ADVOCATE 5K
This isn’t your neighborhood 5K. You get to finish in style and receive an official 5K Medal from The Louisiana Marathon. If you are hoping to participate in The Louisiana Marathon festivities, but you are looking for something a little less than 26.2 or 13.1 miles, then this is it!
Sprinters, joggers, walkers can all participate in this event. Strollers and Baby Joggers are allowed but are asked to remain towards the back of the group for safety purposes.
