THE OFFICIAL RUN OF
FESTIVALS ACADIENS ET CRÉOLES

If you love Festivals Acadiens et Créoles as much as we do then you will love the Tour des Atakapas race! Celebrating our Cajun & Creole heritage is important to maintaining our culture in south Louisiana. The run is a joint coordinated project between TRAIL and Fesival Acadiens et Creoles. The run starts next to Girard Park and runs to Beaver Park & Vermilionville. The 3 and 5 mile runs are 100% road. The 7 mile course will have roughly 1 mile of trail running along the Vermilion river. Post race party is in Girard Park with Festivals Acadiens et Créoles.
Tour des Atakapas is now the race #1 of 3 in the Courir des Cadiens race series. Runners completing all three races will recieve the massive medal shown below. Race #2 is the Cajun Country Run (December 9th) then the series completes on March 12, 2017 at the 4th annual Zydeco Marathon & Half.
