    The Big Beach Marathon, Half Marathon, and 7k take place in Gulf Shores, Alabama, known for its white-sand beaches and clear Gulf of Mexico waters. Boasting a flat and fast Boston Qualifier course, the marathon reveals beautiful scenery as it runs through the paved trail system of Gulf State Park before finishing the last mile on Beach Blvd with great views of the Gulf of Mexico as you cross the finish line. Each participant will receive a custom finishers medal, long sleeve tech race shirt, access to the post-race celebration with free beer, food, and music.
