12th Annual CANE FIELD CLASSIC presented by The Block Fit
Called, "The quintessential Louisiana race", by an Louisiana Ultra Running Legend...this is a race you don't want to miss!
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 ) for 2022 ONLY MACHETE MASSACRE 8 ( 1 Mile / 1 Mile / 4 Mile / 2 Mile )or run just the Sugar Mile.
The 2022 Edition will make up for missing the 2021 Machete 7 Challenge and will include the Sugar Mile, Mini 1 Mile Rows of Hell, the Cane Field 4 Mile and the Rows of Hell.... runs through the middle of low growth Cane Fields! The only way you can get the famous Machete is to sign up for the MACHETE MASSACRE 8 CHALLENGE!
Who doesn't want the; "Most DANGEROUS Running Medal in the World?"*Limited SPOTS available!
MACHETE MASSACRE 8 (2021&2022 Combined Edition)
Runners will receive 2 MACHETES (2021 & 2022 DATED) as well as a special 2022 MACHETE MASSARCE 8 Shirt!
Due to a series of issues we were forced to cancel 2021 before we could even get the race off the ground. We are making up for missing by offering a super challenge for 2022 with an extra Rows Of Hell! For a total of 8 Miles of Misery. Do not miss this one year special edition!
