The Best Races on the Gulf Coast

You love being outdoors. The wind rushes across your face. Discovering new unseen locations only visible on foot.

The Gulf Coast, it’s a runner’s paradise. The unmatched beauty and unspoiled pristine views should put this location at the top of every runner’s list for upcoming races.

Each year cities along the coast host competitive races that allow runners at every stage to soak in the sun and sweet ocean breezes.

If you want to test your luck with the Irish, register for McGuire’s annual St. Patrick’s Day run. They host a run at both their Pensacola and Destin restaurant locations.

Each May Destin hosts the Bayou, Bay & Beach run. Take in the beautiful emerald-green waters as you run by the coastline and through the city of Destin.

Finally, if you decide to trade in the snow for sand on your next Thanksgiving, you can enjoy a guilt-free meal by running the 30A 10K in the morning. Burning off the calories beforehand means you can load up on pumpkin pie and mashed potatoes!

Whether you’re a novice or an expert, test your strength and endurance at some of the best races on the Gulf Coast.
