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.
8:00 am Start – Saturday, Dec. 10, 2022, 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. This race is for everyone, from sprinters, to joggers, to walkers.
*The 5K and Kids Marathon have moved away from Point Cadet Plaza due to road congestion around that area. We are excited to be using the AJ Holloway Sports Complex again this year as runners enjoyed the new venue and course in 2021.
9:30 am Start – Saturday, Dec. 10, 2022, 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 Kids 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.
*All runners are required to complete the 5K at an average 24:00 minute per mile pace. Kids have a total of 30 minutes to complete the kids mile.
