Runner Village

Welcome to the Mississippi Gulf Coast Marathon – a Coastal Running Fest. We are transforming our traditional race expo into a runner village which will be the official start to the running festival and the exclusive Packet Pickup and Late Registration area for all runners of the race weekend.
Learn more about the world of running, health & fitness and the products & services from key partners and sponsors of the event.
We will also have our charity partners present to address any questions about their causes. We invite you to participate in their outreach efforts. The best thing about the expo is that it is FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Late registration is available at the Runner Village 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


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. Quick Tip: You may want to add to your email safe sender list to ensure you’re receiving any important communications regarding your participation.
