Runners Village

Welcome to the Mississippi Gulf Coast Marathon – a Coastal Running Fest. We are transforming our traditional race expo into a runners 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. There is a $5 parking fee collected by the Convention Center, but there is FREE parking on beach road just a short walk away.

Runners Village Expo
There is plenty of lot and garage parking. There will be a $5 event parking fee on Friday and Saturday upon arrival. (Fee collected by the Convention Center not the Marathon)


The Runners Village 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 in Runners Village. 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 in the Runners Village.
Please see the links below to get another confirmation email. Bring a print out of your confirmation email and your photo ID to Runners Village to pick up your packet.
There will be no race day pick-up.
If you cannot pick up your packet in Runners Village, there will be a Proxy Pick-up (picking up a packet for someone else) available. The Proxy Pick-up process is:

  • Present a copy of the participant’s government-issued photo ID
  • Present a copy of the participant’s confirmation email from Get Me Registered
  • Digital copies (your phone screen) are allowed as proof for Proxy Pick-up

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


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.
