Short review

A RUNNING FESTIVAL WITH LAGNIAPPE


The Louisiana Marathon is so much more than a run, we are a culturally rich festival that celebrates both running and the unique and festive culture that defines us.

Louisiana is well known for its festivals, where we celebrate the incredible food, music, and dancing that surrounds us. The Louisiana Marathon adds running to that mix for a truly unforgettable weekend. Come run a fast, flat, and fun race course, and then enjoy a true Louisiana Festival featuring local musicians, locally brewed craft beer, and some of the best southern cuisine around. 

The Louisiana Marathon was established in 2012 with a two-fold mission. The first was to encourage our community to embrace a more active lifestyle and help us become a healthier, fitter state. The second was to be a major racing event on the winter road racing calendar known as a unique running festival that celebrates passion for the sport of running, combined with Louisiana culture.

Each Rendezvous running festival is scheduled for Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend which takes place in Louisiana’s capitol city, Baton Rouge. As a multi-race format there’s a race for everyone: Marathon (26.2 miles), Half Marathon (13.1 miles), Louisiana Quarter Marathon (6.55 miles), Louisiana Marathon 5K (3.1 miles) and a Blue Cross & Blue Shield Kids Marathon (1 mile).

Each year friends, family, and curious spectators line up along miles of picturesque roadways, filled with inspiring Louisiana sights and sounds to cheer on runners from 50 states and over 32 countries. The Louisiana Marathon course takes runners from downtown Baton Rouge through the University Lakes, the Louisiana State University campus, and through historic river town neighborhoods.

It’s so much more than a race. Come see what lagniappe is all about.
