The event will also feature a fun Shreveport themed race; Great Raft Brewing presents the 3.18 Mile Road Race at Crawfest. The standard 5K route has been extended from 3.1 miles to 3.18 miles to celebrate the launch of Great Raft’s new flagship beer – 318 Golden Ale. The race route will take you through the historic South Highlands neighborhood with live music featured throughout the course. Crawfest will start immediately following the race with live music, family activities, and great food and drinks throughout the entire day.
