GEAUX RUN LOUISIANA
THE COURSE CAPTURES A RUN THROUGH OUR STATE
Here, in this little corner of the American South, where European traditions blend with Caribbean influences, the history is as colorful as the local architecture; the food is the stuff of legend. Haitian and African Creoles developed an exotic, spicy cuisine and were instrumental in creating Jazz and Zydeco.
Throughout your run, not only do locals cheer you on and wish you the best, but they also offer you warm king cake, serenade you with great music from Elvis to Big Sam Funky Nation, and give you ample opportunity for sip of a beer, or Bloody Mary.
