The Big Beach Marathon in Gulf Shores
Posted on January 20, 2016
Love to run? Grab your sneakers! If you have recently invested in Gulf Shores real estate and are looking to enjoying running events on the Gulf Coast, this is one you don’t want to miss.
The Big Beach Marathon will take place on January 31, 2016 at 8AM at The Hangout, a favorite Gulf Shores restaurant and event venue. This half and full marathon course is a Boston qualifier and follows the paved pathways of Gulf State Park for the majority of the route. The last three miles, however, follow three scenic miles of Beach Boulevard and lead you to the finish line with the sites and sounds of the Gulf of Mexico.
On the Saturday before the race, head to The Hangout for the kick off party and race expo at noon. At the conclusion of that event at 6PM, grab a seat with your race buddies and carb load for the big day during the pasta buffet dinner. The Hangout will also host the awards and post-race party on Sunday from 11AM-4PM. You won’t want to miss out on the food, beer, music and fun – after all, you’ve earned it with those 26.2 miles!
Registration for this event is still open. Signup today and good luck!
