ABOUT THE LOUISIANA MARATHON

There are lots of marathons. Lots of great marathons. But only one Louisiana Marathon.
Each year, runners from 50 states and 32 countries return to The Louisiana Marathon 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. 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 our charity-fundraising partner program.

AWARDS BY AGE GROUP

Medals-600x90
ALL finishers will receive the most unique finisher’s medal ever designed for runners. Please note that all age group awards are based on UHF timing tags provided by End Result, NOT gun time. However, course records and prize money will be determined according to gun time.

If you are not present to receive your award during the awards ceremony, shipping and handling charges will apply if you request the award to be mailed. We ask that you pick up your award at the awards ceremony to avoid having to send via mail. Art Prints and awards in each division… click here for race Results+Awards>>
