On Sunday, Jan. 15, 2012, the inaugural Louisiana Marathon was celebrated by runners from near and far.

The race directors must have made a deal with mother nature, as it was sunny and cool in the morning, only warming up a bit for the later part of the race.

The race began at 7 a.m. in front of the beautiful Louisiana State Capital. The half-marathon and marathon course began by leading the runners away from downtown to the famous LSU Lakes. After the loop around the Lakes, the runners ventured into historic Baton Rouge neighborhoods and turned back towards downtown. Luckily, runners got to run over the, what seemed to be monstrous, North Blvd overpass twice. The course did lead runners over a train track at one point, which caused some trouble when a train made an untimely appearance during the race.

Every mile was marked with a large, easy-to-spot Louisiana Marathon sign. There were volunteers set up at the split points for the half-marathoners and the marathoners throughout the race course; although, it could have been easy to take the wrong path, as there were no signs. The water stops were efficiently placed around the course and the volunteers did a great job of lifting runner’s spirits as they handed out refreshments.

Once the participants crossed the finish line, they were greeted with a unique finisher medal that doubled as a bottle opener. There certainly should have been no one left hungry or thirsty considering the food and drink sponsors on-hand at the finisher’s festival.

The sponsors included:  Bayou Teche Biere, CC’s Community Coffee House, Covington Brewhouse, Dasani, Doe’s Eat Place, The Edible Event, FRESH JUNKIE, Hoegaarden, Lazy Magnolia Brewing Company, Lucy’s Retried Surfers Bar & Restaurant, Michelob Ultra, Powerade, Saint Arnold Brewing Company, Serranos Salsa Company, Stella Artois, Tin Roof Brewing Company, Viking Cooking School and Whole Foods.

There was also live entertainment by the bands Chasing Scarlett and the Bucktown Allstars. Over-all, the race was well organized and well attended; we can’t wait for 2013.
