Parking & Shuttle Services

Park and shuttle services travel between the Marriott and the Acadian Perkins Plaza Shopping Center (S. Acadian Thruway and Perkins Rd.)  | View Map 

Buses will run between 5:15 - 6:15 a.m. from both locations in the morning, and will resume again between 8:15ish - 1:00 p.m. in the afternoon.

Parking at  the Baton Rouge Beach is extremely limited, and we request that participants refrain from parking in the yards of residents next to or near the course route. We encourage taking advantage of our park and shuttle services.

For those who do not prefer the shuttle, they can park at the Trinity Episcopal Church (Stanford and Morning Glory ) or the LSU campus and walk to the starting line. | View Map

All of our runners have an eating problem because our chefs will meet you at packet pick-up and will follow you to the finish line. Expect piles of jambalaya, gumbo, pizza, salad, and all things Louisiana yum. If the chef is feeling frisky, expect alligator sauce piquant!
