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.

 

Margaritaville Mississippi Gulf Coast 5K - 3.1 Miles

8:00 am Start – Saturday, Dec. 11, 2021, AJ Holloway Sports Complex, Biloxi, MS

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. 

*The 5K and Kids Marathon has had to move away from Point Cadet Plaza due to road construction around that area.  We are excited to be using the AJ Holloway Sports Complex this year and think all runners will enjoy the new venue and course.

Chevron Mississippi Gulf Coast Kids Marathon - 1 Mile

9:30 am Start – Saturday, Dec. 11, 2021, AJ Holloway Sports Complex, Biloxi, MS

The Kids Marathon is a 1-mile race designed as a way to introduce kids to the joy and rewards of running at an early age, and promote an active family lifestyle.  The Kid's Marathon will start and finish at the same location of the 5K and will be a simple out and back course.

*All courses are very well marked.  There are mile markers for each distance event, directional signs for course splits and TURNAROUND signs for course turnarounds.  Course splits and course turnarounds will be manned with an operations staff member who will typically be making announcements on a megaphone.  Course turns are indicated with traffic cones and usually (not always) have police units, volunteers and/or staff members.  Traffic on courses is managed by our law enforcement partners, but no roads are promised to be closed to all traffic.  Runners should be aware of their surroundings: the course, applicable signage, vehicles, staff, volunteers, and police officers.
