The Baton Rouge Beach Marathon course is the stuff of legend and has not been trifled with. It is a certified, flat & fast, double-loop course. It begins & ends at the Beach and passes through the LSU campus, around the LSU lakes & by the estates of noblemen who have paid huge taxes (a/k/a/ bribes) to the foul and odious swine neo-king.

Pros-
1. Race is well organized and a good value (free food at the expo and after the race, shirt, socks,etc.). The organizer is a runner and it shows.
2. Convenient if you travel- host hotel had a shuttle to and from the airport and race.
3. Course is flat but pretty and has some variety ( college campus, water views, neighborhoods)


Cons-
Double loop course- it can be tough to run past the finish without thinking about stopping!
