VIRTUAL OPTION

While we feel confident that we will be able to produce our 10th Annual event in January of 2021, we realize that some runners might not want to participate in person or want to travel in for the event. For this reason, we are offering a virtual option for our Saturday events as well as our Sunday events. You can register to run the 5K, Quarter Marathon, Half Marathon or Full Marathon virtually. All virtual runners will receive a bib, a participant shirt, and a finisher’s medal and so they can run the event virtually but still feel like they are a part of the event. These items will be mailed out the Monday of race week.

COVID-19 POLICY

Here are some FAQ’s related to COVID-19’s impact on the 2021 event

At this time, we are planning to limit some of the pre-race and post-race activities to further support social distancing efforts.  Starting corrals will include larger areas to promote social distancing.  We will likely utilize wave starts to spread participants out on the actual racecourse.  Hand sanitizer stations will be deployed around the venue(s). Volunteer groups, medical teams and operations staff will be utilizing appropriate PPE for their roles. Participants will be encouraged to move through the finish area(s) and into larger outdoor spaces as soon as completing the race.

A. The event still occurs:

We do not offer refunds if you are unable to participate in the event.  We have always implemented this no refund policy.  If you are unable to travel, become ill, have a family illness or emergency, or decide not to participate there are NO REFUNDS.  This policy is consistent with most races across the country and we encourage you to respect the refund policy.  The planning and production of this event incurs costs for rent, storage, utilities, insurance, staff, marketing, medals, t-shirts, bibs, etc. months in advance of the event.  Some of these costs are fixed and many of these costs are based on rates and trends of registered runners.  When you register, we are counting on you and your fee to help us remain open and produce the event.  Most events have a deferral policy that will allow you to defer your registration to the following event year for a small fee.  These policies are not available within 14 days of the event.  We are not able to offer a deferral or refund your registration fee if you cannot attend last minute.

B. The event is cancelled race day or race weekend due to weather, Acts of God, or other public emergency situations:

We do not offer refunds if the event is cancelled on race day or race weekend due to weather, Acts of God, or other public emergency situations.  We have always implemented this no refund policy.  This policy is consistent with most races across the country and we encourage you to respect the refund policy.  The planning and production of this event incurs costs for rent, storage, utilities, insurance, staff, marketing, medals, t-shirts, bibs, etc. months in advance of the event.  If the event is not able to occur at the time of the event or race weekend due to these uncontrollable circumstances, we are not able to refund you.  Our goal is always to hold the event rain or shine, hot or cold, as long as your safety, the safety or our staff, volunteers, vendors and municipalities is not jeopardized. 

C. If the event is cancelled by government agencies in advance due to COVID-19 or other similar health concerns, participants will be able to choose one of the following options:

1. Defer to following event year

2. Choose to participate in the Virtual Event

3. Donate entry fees to a selected charity partner

4. Receive a full refund less processing fees

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!
