Race Website Course Map


Annual Wild Azalea Trail Challenge is slated in the Evangeline Ranger District of the Kisatchie National Forest, just outside of Alexandria, Louisiana. At 26 miles, this is the longest continuous trail in the entire state of Louisiana. No other trail even comes close to the beauty and topography which abounds along the Wild Azalea.

This event is for all who appreciate the “old school way” of running and biking trails and suits primarily the intermediate to advance level of trail runner/biker. The Wild Azalea is a well-maintained and mapped trail system, so navigation will be quite easy and reasonable. The trail includes visible 1/2 mile markers.

There will be 6 participant classes: 13, 27 or 50 Mile Ultra Individual; 27 or 50 Mile Mountain Bike; 27 Mile Bike/Run Duathlon. First leg of duathlon will bike 15 miles while the 2nd leg will run 12 miles. The duathlon exchange point will be at the intersection of the Azalea Trail and Louisiana Hwy 488 (Twin Bridges Rd) and Messina Road. This is the same location as the beginning of the 1/2 marathon. We will provide transportation for those needing transport to this point and we will transport your bike back to the finish line. This area will also be the location of an aid station.
