About This Activity

W. Higgins Adventure and Events

 presents  the

4th Annual

CANE FIELD CLASSIC

The event will again be held on Margaret Plantation in West Baton Rouge Parish, with the races beginning at 8:00 a.m., 8:15 a.m., and 9:15 a.m.

The races will start and finish on Margaret Plantation, a 100+ 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!

ALL NEW for 2013!!! The Rows of Hell 1 Miler... is a run through the middle of a new low-growth field.  You will be running down the field rows (single track) on a weaving course that is surely going to be a challenge and finishing with a 15th of a mile strait away race to the finish.
