Called, "The quintessential Louisiana race", by an Louisiana Ultra Running Legend...this is a race you don't want to miss!

The races will start and finish on Margaret Plantation, a 150+ year old Sugar Cane Plantation. Runners will race down headlands (field roads), surrounded by mature sugar cane on all sides, travel along large canals and view the Louisiana State Capitol from afar. The Cane Field Classic is truly a race unlike any other! Live Cajun Music, great food, refreshments and fresh cut sugar cane will greet runners at the end of the race!

Run either the Machete 7 ( 1 Mile / 4 Mile / 2 Mile) or run just the Sugar Mile.

The Machete 7 Challenge includes the Sugar Mile, the Cane Field 4 Mile and the Rows of Hell... a 2 Mile run through the middle of low growth Cane Fields! The only way you can get the famous Machete/Knife is to sign up for the Machete 7 CHALLENGE!

Who doesn't want the; "Most DANGEROUS Running Metal in the World?"

*Only 500 Machetes available!

Registrations After 10/01/18

Unfortunately, we do not own a magic crystal ball thus we can not accurately predict shirt sizes for late registration. You may not receive a shirt on race day but they will be available for pickup at a later date. If shipping is required that will be the responsibility of the participant. Thanks for your understanding!
