Description:

Well, we finally got word from the state about the trail conditions for Loup Garou, annnndddd…. it’s another out and back year. Yeah, I’m not happy about it either, but we are fortunate that they are letting us have the race at all. Since the first big surge in Covid the Louisiana state government has been using state parks to house covid patients who either can’t go home (no one to take care of them), or live in an assisted living facility and they want to isolate them from that population. Chicot State Park is the last park being used for this purpose, with the others having been opened back up as the Covid numbers go down. Because some of the areas where the patients are being housed are near the trail, portions of the 20 mile loop are closed temporarily, forcing this to be turned into an extended out and back.

The Loup Garou Trail Run offers distances of 20, 40, 60, and 100 miles. The race is run on the 20 mile, mostly single track loop around the beautiful Lake Chicot in Ville Platte, Louisiana. Runners will go over long wooden bridges through cypress swamps, through piney woods and hardwood forests. The 20 mile loop will have 4 aid stations along the way with experienced trail runners at each serving up a serious dose of Cajun hospitality and tough love. Of course, being Cajun, once the racers are finished their distance there will be plenty of food – no one leaves hungry in Cajun country! Join us this December for what is sure to become a favorite of many!
