Louisiana Marathon Reviews


5.0 Stars from 8 Runners

Review

Pros: Great organization. Voluntary corrals. LOTs of bathrooms. Flat and fast. Great t-shirt/medal. Beautiful course.

Cons: Only that it was warm. Baton Rouge has a nice little gem of a run. I'm surprised it isn't growing in popularity.


Race Tips

More times than not I run a BQ time. This race was no exception. 325 ft. of gain. Start off easy and enjoy!


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Watermark was nice. 5 blocks from the start - easy walk. Go to the Federal Building after the run. You can see the finish line and all the events from the 27th. Floor.

Great organization, well placed fuel/water/bathroom stops, best finish line festival + food of any race I've ever been at.


Race Tips

Very flat course, good shade through the first 15 miles then in the sun off and on through 18-22

Review

The race was really well organized and the course was a real pleasure. Support along the course was fantastic - especially for a smaller race. The post race parties (both Saturday and Sunday) are fantastic with a great selection of local food, beer and entertainment.


Race Tips

There is a 5k race on Saturday which I ran as a shakeout for Sunday's marathon. The 5k is really well done and completing the races on both days gets you additional swag.


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

I was able to find a hotel within about six blocks for the start/finish area which worked out pretty well.

The course is flat, fast, and fantastic. Running through LSU, around the lake, and through the neighborhoods kept it from being monotonous. The spectators are wonderful. The finish festival is second to none. Great music, fantastic Louisiana food, beer, and great swag for award winners. The expo had many good vendors and high quality race merchandise.


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Very convenient to stay in downtown hotels, many of which are walking distance to both the expo and the start/finish.

Well administered, best manned aid stations, excellent after party, nice weather, good location. Was a little disappointed in the expo but other than that this is an excellent race.

Review

A nice mid-sized (900 full, 1800 half) race. In only its second year it is well organized. Abundant water stops and on course port-a-potties. First half is very nice running thru LSU campus, some pretty parks and often running along water. The second half is more boring. A long out and back and run through repetitive neighborhoods. Some very bad roads the first 2 miles or so (I saw 3 folks fall) but after that fine.


Race Tips

It is a very flat course. A few overpasses mainly in the early miles (although one at mile 25) but otherwise flat. In 2013 we had great weather. 40ish at the 7:00 start and 50's at 11:00. Lots of water stops (all had poweraid) and lots of gel handouts too. For a race in its second year the fan turnout was impressive.


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

I stayed at a motel 6 about 10 minutes from the start line. I arrived about an hour early and easily found parking. Also even 20 minutes before the start I was able to quickly use the port-a-potty.
