HOW IT WORKS
FINISH THE QUARTER MARATHON OR 5K SATURDAY + THE MARATHON OR HALF MARATHON SUNDAY
Are you up to the challenge? Do you enjoy a shakeout run before your big race? If so, then sign up for the Double Down Award and receive a coveted seafood tray, perfect for a coastal boil of shrimp or crab. Your Double Down Award comes in handy when you are at the Finish Festival holding your fresh Gulf seafood, incredible BBQ, and cold Coors Light!
HOW TO REGISTER AND HOW TO CONFIRM DOUBLE DOWN STATUS
Register for a specific Double Down package on Get Me Registered or register for your two races separately – either way we will have you on the list. We will track and cross-reference participants in the database, and you can confirm registrations with getmeregistered.com or at the Expo during packet pick up.
TO REDEEM YOUR AWARD
After your Sunday race, go to the official awards tent near the Finish Festival stage in MGM Park to pick up your Double Down Award. Then enjoy your tray at your next seafood boil! And be sure to take a few photos and share your tray in action on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
When your inspiration comes from a place like the Rockies, you don’t brew just any light beer. 140 years ago, Adolph Coors set out to build a quality beer brewery, and wound up creating a legacy. He was obsessed with making the best beer he could and built Coors brewing in Golden, Colorado because of the superior water quality. An American Lager born in the Rockies in 1978, today Coors Light applies its cold-stage brewing process throughout the country. Always lagered, filtered and packaged at the edge of freezing for its signature clean, crisp taste and ice-cold finish. More than words; this is the way Coors Light is brought to life. First, aged (lagered) below freezing to give our beer its crisp taste. Then it’s filtered cold so that it gets that brilliant, bright appearance. Finally, cold bottled at the peak of freshness to ensure that every Coors Light starts cold and refreshing and ends the same way. Please enjoy Coors Light responsibly.
WHAT IS THE DOUBLE DOWN AWARD?
We have created a Double Down Award for those runners who see the finish line two days in a row. This finisher award is given to all runners who complete the Saturday 5K at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Marathon and finish the Marathon or the Half the following day.
The Double Down Award is a seafood tray common in many restaurants and at home seafood boils. This one in particular is designed by the Mississippi Gulf Coast Marathon and is ideal for serving up any and all fresh Gulf Seafood — especially boiled crabs and shrimp.
