Join us Saturday, May 20th at 7am as we race to benefit Growing Minds©, a non-profit charity that helps local classrooms and students! The DixieMaze half marathon is run through beautiful farm land on the scenic Sentell Loop, passing the historic Dixie Gin and Cairo Plantation! The race begins and ends at DixieMaze Farms. Several farm attractions will be open that day to runners and their families at no additional charge until 3pm.

Your registration will include a race medal and goody bag. Registration is $55 and you can add a race tshirt when you register for an additional $13 if you choose.

The run will begin at 7am and all participants should be at DixieMaze Farms, 9596 Sentell Rd., Shreveport, LA 71107 at least 45 minutes prior to the start. There will be water stations throughout the route and the road will be clearly marked and volunteers will be present at all important turns and locations.

Growing Minds© is a nonprofit organization that provides small grants directly to educators to help provide resources in their classroom. The mission of Growing Minds is to fulfill items on educator wishlists that can help students develope a better understanding of the natural world around them. The race will benefit Growing Minds and classroom grants will be awarded from race proceeds.

This is the first year of the DixieMaze Farms Half Marathon and we anticipate it will be the first of many. DixieMaze Farms sponsors the Down and Dirty Mud Run which has run for 5 years and has grown to be one of the highest rated 5k in Louisiana with hundreds of participants every year! We felt there was room for a Half Marathon in the late spring in the Shreveport/Bossier area and we look forward to helping the DixieMaze Farms Half Marathon grow for many years to come.

A waiver of liability must be signed by each partcipant (or the legal guardian of a participant under the age of 18) and will be available at DixieMaze Farms on race day. It can also be downloaded here.

There are no set age limitations. We anticipate parents and legal guardians will use judgement with respect to the children and their abilities, under their charge.
