About This Activity

The Anna’s Grace Quarter Marathon is back in 2020, and we are once again running for the 1 in 4!  The race benefits Anna’s Grace Foundation which is designed to help families in the Greater Baton Rouge Area who have experienced a miscarriage, stillbirth, or loss of a child under one year of age by providing financial and emotional support.

Race Date and Location
This year’s race was on Sunday, March 22, 2020 but due to the coronavirus situation has been rescheduled for May 31, 2020.  We are excited to announce that L'auberge Hotel & Casino Baton Rouge will once again host our 2020 race which allows us to keep a peaceful River Road course.  Our Finish Line Festivities will be held in L'auberge's overflow lot on River Road.

What's Included?

Each participant receives a race bib with timing chip, a swag bag full of goodies from our sponsors, an official race t-shirt (guarantee date is May 22, 2020), a finisher’s medal, and free entry into the post-race festivities.

Running Teams
Teams make a huge difference in enabling Anna's Grace Foundation to fulfill its mission, and we hope that you will consider being a part of our efforts.  Please keep in mind that running teams and fundraising teams are distinct and separate groups.  You will be able to create a RUNNING TEAM when you register yourself for the event. 

Fundraising Teams

You Can Make a Difference!

A quarter of all pregnancies will end in a loss.  We are challenging our community to form teams to support the 1 in 4 and the mission of Anna's Grace Foundation.  

Awards will be given in the following categories:

> Top Fundraising Team*

> Most Race Participants on a Team

In order to be included on Race Day Banner or Official Race T-Shirt, teams must reach fundraising milestones by May 15, 2020. *Donations must be collected by 11:59 pm on Friday, May 15, 2020, in order to qualify for the Top Fundraising Team award.  Any amounts collected after this time are greatly appreciated but will not be counted for the purpose of this team award.

Race Packet Pickup

Although packet pickup is available on race day, it is strongly recommended that packets be picked up BEFORE race day.  Details on where and when to pick up your race packet will be communicated as soon as everything is set.

The Courses

We are still working on perfecting our race courses for this year's event and look forward to revealing our new course very soon.  The courses will all begin in the L'auberge overflow lot on River Road and will travel north along River Road to distinct turn around points for each race  before heading back to the lot.

Course Memorial Signs

Our Course Memorial Signs will line each race route in honor of the little ones we have lost.  They are a powerful reminder of our mission and WHY we are running.  For more information on ordering signs, please click HERE.

Post-Race Festivities

After the race, let’s hang out a bit.  You’ve earned some food and drink (yes, this includes adult drinks), and we’ve got plenty of it for you.  So, please help yourself.
