The event kicks off on Friday, the day before the run, with an expo located at the Golden Nugget. There you not only participate in early packet pickup, but vendors are on hand with running gear and other items at discount prices. Expo day, Stacy Bizjak Photography, the official event photographer, is on site to take your free backdrop photos at the expo and during the event.
All races start at 8:30am in front of the Golden Nugget Casino. The 10k course crosses over the Biloxi Bay Bridge into the city of Ocean Springs, follows along the waterfront, into town and back across the bridge. The finish line for all races is located at the Golden Nugget swimming pool. The 5k run/competitive walk crosses the bridge, turns and crosses back, with the same ending point at the Golden Nugget Casino.
A portion of the proceeds from this event go to Furrever Homes Rescue.
