    Acadiana's Oldest half marathon is the most beautiful running course in Lafayette.  Runners have the options between either road races or trail races.  The road race distance options include: 1/2 marathon, 10k or 5k; while the trail running options include 5k or 10k.

    Run and support TRAIL's investments and efforts in Acadiana Park & Nature Station.  Do really well and win an alligator head. 

    Visit www.CajunCountry.RUN for details about the various courses, parking, and general information about Acadiana Park & Nature Station.  

    The Cajun Country Run (CCR) started in 2002 and became a primary supporter of TRAIL in 2010.  Today the event now offers 5 running options.  The road race options include a half marathon (a single loop and USATF certified), a 10K (USATF certified) and 5K.  Two trail courses include a 10K & 5K that offer a mix cross country and single track sections.  The 10K course will take you on some technical sections along the banks of the Vermilion River.

    The hallmark of the CCR is the home made alligator head trophies, compliments of Cajun Ben   The original half marathon course was a double loop course that included 4 miles of cross country running.  In 2014 we changed the half marathon course to an all road single loop course and got it certified by the USATF. 

    Proceeds from the CCR have allowed T.R.A.I.L. to  do work in and around Acadiana Park.  In 2012 T.R.A.I.L. purchased property to add to the Acadiana Park & Nature Station.  TRAIL has also help fund some improvements to the mountain bike trail system built and maintained by Mountain Bike Lafayette.
