VENUE

The race start/stop will be at the Montegut Recreation Center in Montegut, LA.  From there, the race will quickly transition shell road for the first leg through the Louisiana Wildlife Preserve.  The course then takes you along an unimproved grass levee where you will get to experience the natural beauty of the Louisiana wetlands.  Along the route, you will see firsthand the challenges and some of the strategies that are being deployed for both protection and restoration, including federal and local levees, flood gates, terracing projects, and more.  This will be an experience you will not soon forget.
