About This Activity

This is THE INAGURAL 8K race in Gulfport. Last year's USATF 5K is now a USAFT 8K, happening the first Saturday of the New Year (Jan 3rd, 2015)!

Running through an expanded, scenic, bay front course, you will start and end at the historic Casino building at the waterfront.

The event also includes a health fair expo the Friday prior, and post-race awards ceremony. We continue to grow each year, and would like to eventually make this a top race in the region and the state, benefiting prostate cancer screenings, education and ultimately saving lives!

Make sure you have a spot for the first race of the year, so register early to ensure your place!
