ABOUT THE LOUISIANA MARATHON

There are lots of marathons. Lots of great marathons. But only one Louisiana Marathon.

For the fifth year, runners from 50 states and 32 countries will return to The Louisiana Marathon on January 17 for Rendezvous on the Bayou.

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. And competitive runners: the course has a USAT&F Certification (#LA11019JF), making it your perfect opportunity to qualify for the Boston Marathon. As lagniappe, we’ll have local music along the course for runners and spectators to enjoy throughout the race.

The Louisiana Marathon could be sold out come January—caps are set for 2,000 marathon runners to ensure a quality experience for all. However,  additional registrations will be available through our charity-fundraising partner program.
