What RUNNERS say about us

they came, they ran, they loved it!

Highly recommend this Marathon! My husband and I traveled from Tucson to participate, and Baton Rouge did not disappoint. We appreciated the volunteers, cheering spectators, frequent well-stocked aid stations along the course, great pace group leaders, and especially the Finish Fest with Cajun food, live music, and local beer! This is a well-organized marathon!

We could never recommend this race enough!! It was fabulous!! Before, during and after. The expo, the start, the course, the race support, the spectator support, the finish, the medal and the post race food were all quite possibly the best we’ve experienced. Hopefully next year we will be able to make a full weekend out of it and run both days (combo races / awards available) as well as stay a little longer afterward to enjoy the post race festivities. Put this one on your list for a great time in Louisiana!!

Nothing but love for this race! The course is the best scenic tour I've ever had of Baton Rouge, and the atmosphere is Louisiana from start to finish: festivity, hospitality, and old time Southern charm. I felt welcome and supported the whole way, and I made sure to thank the volunteers and police for all their help, and all the locals in their front yards for coming out and making our big day so special. I couldn't have picked a better place to earn my first medal. Son-of-a-gun, we had big fun on the bayou!
