There are lots of marathons. Lots of great marathons. But only one Louisiana Marathon. Each year, runners from 50 states and 32 countries return to The Louisiana Marathon for Rendezvous on the Bayou. The Louisiana Marathon course features a fast, flat, runner-friendly path through the lakes, along the river, around downtown, on the university campus and in historic neighborhoods. And competitive runners: the course has a USAT&F Certification (#LA11019JF), making it your perfect opportunity to qualify for the Boston Marathon. As lagniappe, we’ll have local music along the course for runners and spectators to enjoy throughout the race.

Runners can expect a marathon, half marathon, quarter marathon, 5K and kids marathon during race weekend.

Event Start Location
Louisiana State Museum, 660 North 4th Street Baton Rouge, LA 70802

Packet Pickup / Expo
Welcome to Rendezvous 2018. The Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana Expo at The Louisiana Marathon is the official start to the Louisiana Marathon running festival and the exclusive Packet Pickup and Late Registration area for all runners of the race weekend. This year, we anticipate over 10,000 runners and 24,000+ attendees at the event.

The Expo is the only place you can pick-up your registration packet. You must present a valid government-issued picture ID to pick up your packet. If the races are not filled to capacity, there will be a registration booth at the expo. There is NO race day registration.

Post Race Activities
The Finish Festival is open to the public and features mouth-watering Louisiana food and an eclectic variety of local music. Last year, more than 24,000 runners, spectators, foodies and music lovers enjoyed the two-day festival.
The Finish Festival cranks up when runners participating in the Louisiana 5k, Quarter Marathon and Kids Marathon cross the finish line near the State Capitol Park on the Saturday of The Louisiana Marathon. The Finish Fest continues on Sunday, following the Louisiana Marathon and Half Marathon.
