When we decided to go to Baton Rouge, I’m not sure what we expected. Were we thinking New Orleans? Not sure, but it definitely wasn’t New Orleans. I’m not a football fan but I’m pretty sure there is some sort of rivalry between LSU and UT. Well I choose UT simply because I’d rather live in Austin than in Baton Rouge. Baton Rouge is cute. The people are nice. It’s a good place to run.
But that’s all besides the point. I would totally do the Louisiana Marathon Half again because the after-party is AMAZING.
If you like beer and crawfish and Louisiana style food and coffee then this race is a winner. Plus, they offer this deal where you can run the 5 or 10K the day before and you get a crawfish plate. I have never had so much food or fun at a race. Highly recommend this weekend race.
