Blues 2 Beach!
One of America’s favorite double weekends is back for 2018 with a whole new look, the Big Beach Marathon is teaming up with the Mississippi Blues Marathon for the new Blues2Beach Back2Back Challenge. Back2Back participants will run the Blues on Saturday, January 27, then head south to Gulf Shores, Alabama, for the Big Beach Marathon on Sunday, January 28, starting and finishing at the world famous Hangout.
