Acadiana Park Soccer Field
The Cajun Country Half is an out-and-back race that starts and finishes at Acadiana Park in the northeast corner of this city, which is well-known regionally both for its college sports teams as well as for its authentic cajun cuisine, as Baton Rouge has one of the highest concentrations of restaurants of any city in the U.S.
As Lafayette’s only half-marathon running road race, the Cajun Country Half is scheduled to take advantage of the cool early winter temperatures and as a warm-up to the seasonal marathons and half-marathons that take place early in the new year, including New Orleans’s Rock & Roll Marathon & Half Marathon, which takes place each February.
This is a smooth fast course. The only two hills of any significance are: 1) the I-10 overpass at mile 10 and, 2) the climb at the turn onto E. Alexander St. about 200 meters from the finish (which makes for a tremendous feeling of accomplishment when crossing the finish line). The run starts off traveling through the neighborhood around Acadiana Park then down Louisiana Ave. before turning onto Shadow Bluff Rd. Then it is "country time" from here on out you will see few house and will run along some nice winding tree streets along the Vermilion River then on some open roads around some cane fields.
