PACKET PICK UP
The expo is the only place you can pick-up your registration packet. You must present a valid government-issued picture ID to pick up your packet. If the races are not filled to capacity, there will be a registration booth at the expo. There will not be race day registration or race day packet pick-up.
Every participant in the marathon, half marathon, 5K and kids marathon will receive an Official Participant Guide via e-mail, download and a printed version at the expo.
Please see the links below to get another confirmation email. Bring a print out of your confirmation email and your photo ID to the Expo to pick up your packet.
There will be no race0day pick-up.
If you cannot pick up your packet at the Expo, there will be a Proxy Pick-up (picking up a packet for someone else) available. The Proxy Pick-up process is:
- Present a photocopy of the participant’s government-issued photo ID (for the production company)
- Present a copy of the participant’s confirmation email from Get Me Registered
The photo copy of the ID will be retained until the completion of the event weekend as proof of packet distribution. There are no exceptions to this rule. Please see FAQs section of the website for more information.
Late registration is available at the expo unless the race(s) sells out. The Mississippi Gulf Coast Marathon will post a notice regarding closed races on our website, Facebook and Twitter pages. Participants can register or change races in the Race Registration area, which is located directly to the right of the expo entrance. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registered Participants should receive a confirmation email during the registration process. While the only requirement is that you present your government-issued photo ID, we also recommend either printing your confirmation and bringing it to packet pickup or having a copy electronically available on your mobile device.

Visit Mississippi Gulf Coast
Tucked away between New Orleans, Louisiana and Mobile, Alabama, there’s 62 miles of scenic coastline just waiting for you to discover. A little slice of southern coastal heaven, where waters are nice ‘n calm thanks to our barrier islands. A place where you can run, paddle, swim and drift the day away.
Plan your trip and learn about things to do on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
