DEJA VU

FINISH THE QUARTER MARATHON OR 5K SATURDAY + THE MARATHON OR HALF MARATHON SUNDAY

Are you up to the challenge? Do you enjoy a shakeout run before your big race? If so, then sign up for the Déjà Vu Award and receive a coveted crawfish tray. You won’t have enough hands to carry all the mouthwatering food at the Finish Festival – like Jambalaya, Gumbo, and Alligator Sauce Piqaunte – so the Déjà Vu Award comes in handy (pun intended). Purchase a VIP Bayou or Cypress package to hold your Bloody Mary or Mimosa.

HOW TO REGISTER AND HOW TO CONFIRM DÉJÀ VU STATUS

Register for a particular Déjà Vu package on our Get Me Registered booking engine or register for your two races separately – either way we will have you on the list. We will track and cross-reference participants in the database, and you can confirm registrations with getmeregistered.com or at the Expo at packet pick up.

TO REDEEM YOUR AWARD

After your Sunday race, go to the Official Awards tent near the Finish Festival stage to pick up your Déjà Vu Award. Then enjoy your tray at your next seafood boil! Be sure to take a few photos and share your tray in action on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

Beach~2~Bayou

Run any distance at The Louisiana Marathon and at our sister event, The Mississippi Gulf Coast Marathon and receive a third medal. You can run a 5K at each , a half marathon at each or mix and match distances – 5K at one and Half at the other and qualify for the Beach~2~Bayou challenge medal.  Learn More >>
