Running The Louisiana Marathon can be an indulgent dip into the eclectic culture, lush landscape, welcoming community, and rich palate of this incomparable state.

You will run beside the mighty Mississippi, through historic, oak-lined neighborhoods, along a cypress dotted bayou, and then land in a Finish Festival filled with mouth-watering Louisiana cuisine, drink, and local music. In Louisiana, we run to eat and drink, and we want to show you how it’s done!

Fly into Baton Rouge and take a cab to your downtown hotel. We encourage you to explore our beautiful state and to Pick Your Passion, because we truly appreciate the Louisiana culture. You’ll appreciate that from Monday to Sunday of race week you can walk everywhere.
