Thanks to our relationship with the editors of Active Acadiana magazine in Lafayette, we’ve joined up with the Zydeco Marathon & Half staff to promote the 2017 race. More than 2,000 people who are glutton for punishment (just kidding) will run either 13.1 or 26.2 miles through the Heart of Lafayette.
Along with developing a 5 year plan, we were given the task of reaching out to the community for participation on race day. Over 58% of the runners are visiting from out of town, and their #1 reason for choosing Lafayette is the culture. What an honor! This could be a check off of their bucket list or THE run that qualifies them for the ultimate Boston Marathon – either way, we’re grateful they chose our beloved city.
So now that they’ll be here on the weekend of March 11-12, it’s our job to make sure all residents and businesses are living up to the Lafayette reputation. Be on the lookout for more Zydeco antics in the near future, but the Motivation Stations and #ZydecoPorchParty planning is under way.
We can’t wait to see what the city comes up with!
