DOUBLE DOWN AWARD

Runners who finish the 5K on Saturday AND finish the Marathon OR Half Marathon on Sunday receive the coveted Double Down Award. The 10-inch “seafood tray” is common dinnerware in many coastal seafood restaurants, bearing the fruits of the Gulf Coast; but at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Marathon, it is also the symbol of dedication, preparation, commitment and endurance. It’s a trophy that few earn.

Double Down awards must be picked up at the event.  Double Down Awards can be claimed as soon as a runner finishes his or her race on Sunday. No awards will be shipped post-race.

 

BEACH~2~BAYOU AWARD

Two Races, Three Medals, All the Fun
Run any distance (excluding the Kids Marathons) at The Mississippi Gulf Coast Marathon and any distance (excluding the Kids Marathons) at our sister race, The Louisiana Marathon, and get a sweet third medal: the Beach~2~Bayou Challenge Medal. You can mix and match the distances however you like: a 5K at each, a half at one & a full at the other… any two distances and you get the Beach~2~Bayou Medal. 

HOW IT WORKS 
Register for each race separately and we will track your participation.  Pickup your medal at the awards tent at the Louisiana Marathon on either Saturday or Sunday after finishing your race there.
