The Mississippi Gulf Coast Marathon weekend is a multi-race event, offering four different distances. Saturday gets started at 8am with our Margaritaville Mississippi Gulf Coast Marathon 5K, and is followed by our Chevron Kids Marathon 1-Mile race at 9:30am. Sunday is our Marathon and Half Marathon, both of which start at 7am. We also offer a Double Down award for runners who want to run on both days.
The Mississippi Gulf Coast Marathon course features a fast, flat, BQ-friendly path along the coast from Pass Christian to Biloxi. The course is a USATF Certified Boston Qualifier route and offers unobstructed beach views and takes you past some of the coast’s most historic and beautiful homes.
Join us on the coast for the fastest growing race distance in the country: the half marathon. While the Mississippi Gulf Coast Half Marathon may only be half the distance, it’s all the fun you need with 13.1 miles of unobstructed beach views.
A 5K that everyone from the most experienced runner to the first-timer can appreciate. Toe the line with Mississippi locals and travelers striving to secure a Double Down award for running both days, with sprinters, joggers, and walkers.
