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, and 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, locals cheer you on and wish you the best. They also offer you warm king cake, serenade you with great music ranging from Elvis to Big Sam Funky Nation, and give you ample opportunity to sip a beer – or Bloody Mary – if you’re feeling bold.

Pick Your Passion – there’s lots to do around the state before and after your run. Click LOUISIANA Travel or Like Facebook/Louisiana Travel.
