Two Races, Three Medals, All the Fun

Run any distance at The Louisiana Marathon and any distance at our sister race, The Mississippi Gulf Coast Marathon and get a  third medal, the Beach~2~Bayou Challenge medal. You can mix and match the distances however you like: a 5K at each,  a half at one & a full at the other… any two distances and you get the Beach~2~Bayou medal. 

How it works 

Register for any distance race at The Louisiana Marathon and any distance race at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Marathon.  Registrations for these events must be done separately.  We will track your participation through the registration company. You don’t need to do anything else.


Pickup your medals at the awards tent in the Louisiana Marathon Finish Festival. Can’t stick around for the Finish Festival? Order your medal to be sent to you by contacting or go online to the gear store and schedule the shipment of your medal.
