Sorry for the late response Cheri! The website only lists a 6 hour time limit for the full marathon. Since the full marathon is a double loop of the half marathon course then the course should be open to both full and half marathon participants for the entire amount of time. 6 hours is plenty of time to walk 13.1 miles! (roughly 27 minutes per mile).

You've got this! Just do it! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Does anyone know if walkers are welcome at the 1/2 marathon?

On my way!

Hello All!!! Sorry I've been MIA. Team Louisiana has been constantly in my thoughts, though. Recently the Zydeco Marathon revealed the finisher medals and they are AWESOME!

The updated course map is here: zydecomarathon.com/pdf/ZydecoCourseM
ap
.pdf


Zyde-geaux marathon training has also begun and you can findaccess to more info here: zydecomarathon.com/train.php

I'm still SO ECSTATIC about this event! Let's Geaux Louisiana!

I am awaiting word of if there will be any prerace pasta party sponsored by the race, if not I would like to organize a Sparkpeople meet & greet at a local restaurant the evening before the race. It will not be necessary that you be a race participant in order to attend the dinner. Updates will be posted here as the time draws near!

None to report yet. I recently contacted the race administrators (through the website) to ask about permission for a spectator tent/table setup along the course about a mile from the finish (near the intersection of University and Congress). I haven't received any response yet, so I'm thinking I should find out if any businesses or residences are around that location to ask them for permission, since they would technically be the landowners.

I think this would be a great place for Sparkers who aren't running the race to convene and cheer on those who are. Plus we can hand out free high fives to give them an extra boost to push through that final mile. Once I get a response about the location I will be asking around for anyone who has a tent or tables that can be used for that day.

I will continue to post updates here.

Thanks for posting this topic Linda! I'm still SUPER PUMPED about the marathon! They already have tee shirts available with the Zydeco Marathon logo! They also have the course map uploaded as well as a couple of youtube commercials. If you want to check them out here are the links.

There is also the option for qualified organizations to benefit financially through marathon volunteering. If your organization has 10 volunteers you can earn $250, 25 volunteers earns $500, 50 volunteers earns $850 and so on... If anyone is a part of an organization that wants to raise funds this would be a great opportunity!
