I heard about this race prior to this post but have to confess I have been behind and didn't get a chance to list it or participate. However a lot of my friends posted about it on Facebook and it appears to have been a huge success for it's first year in 2012. The Louisiana Marathon, a multi-race format: Marathon, The Half, The Relays, Cypress 5k Challenge and RocketKidz Marathon.
The runner-friendly course includes the lakes, the university, the revitalized downtown area and historic neighborhoods in the heart of the state's capital.
The first year appeared to be a huge success with lots of fun going on around the race, television crews and an all out January blast. I'll definitely try to do it next year.
