PLENTY OF TALK FROM BEACH TO BAYOU


THE LOUISIANA HALF MARATHON

Southerners know how to throw a party. Each runner gets a wristband good for six servings of Cajun grub from 24 local restaurants. Options include jambalaya, gumbo, duck confit, shrimp étouffée and pork-cheek sliders. There’s even a vegan village with choices for plant-based athletes. Earning your feast requires a fairly flat tour of Baton Rouge. You’ll run through neighborhoods lined with oak trees and plantation-style homes, the sprawling LSU campus, and cypress-shaded paths along the Mississippi. A crowd of 3,400 runners (plus 2,00 marathoners) keeps things lively from start to finish.
