We produce the soon to be world famous Gulf Coast Half Marathon Series. For the past 5 years the GCHMS has changed expectations of runners and cities alike of how a major endurance event should be produced. We take pride in our attention to detail of course design all the way to the post race party. Thousands of runners now proudly use and display "America's Most Useful Finishers Medal" on their walls, by the pool and at the beach.

The 13.1 miles of running through beautiful beach and coastal communities will treat runners to stunning views of the water, historical neighborhoods & amazing white sand beaches that are unmatched anywhere. In true Gulf Coast style, the event will wrap with an awesome post race party that is sure to become a thing of legends.
