Louisiana Marathon- A weekend of culture
BATON ROUGE - Louisiana Marathon founder and Course Director Craig Sweeney, joined Whitney on 2une-In to talk about the festivities on January 17th-19th.
This is the third year for the Louisiana Marathon. Four races take place over the course of the weekend: the Marathon, Half-Marathon, the 5K and the Kids' Marathon.
Even though its namesake is the race, the three-day weekend offers so much more. Music, food and more entertainment highlight the weekend.
There are already more people signed-up to participate in 2014 than this year. Participants come from 49 states and six countries. The group has set a charitable goal of $250,000. Early projections are predicting an economic impact of over $5 million.
