Louisiana Marathon Medal – 2012

Inaugural Louisiana Marathon Medal (2012)

The inaugural Louisiana Marathon took place on January 15, 2012 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The race had a great turnout for a first year event and seemed to be extremely well put on.

Here is a look at the finisher’s medal from the Louisiana Marathon.

It’s rather simply, no fancy bells or whistles, but is well done with the footprint being composed of a cypress tree, the state tree of Louisiana, within it.
