For the past 7 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 new year brings new resolutions, new goals and new looks. Starting in 2017, the Gulf Coast Half Marathon - Louisiana Northshore will stand alone, independent of Gulf Shores & Pensacola Beach. Be on the lookout coming soon for a the new look, new options and exciting changes we have in store for you!
