Cajun Cup is a great race that starts downtown and goes through Lafayette, LA around the Cajundome. The road is flat and fast, I PRd at this race! There is a wonderful array of runners who compete in this, from elite runners to walkers. There is a prize purse for the winners, so the fast people definitely come out for it!
There is music and food afterward and is just really fun. The shirt is a long sleeve tech tee, which is awesome, and the metal is great too if you're really in to that. I would definitely recommend this race!
