Battle on Buffet Beach will return to Pascagoula this fall, with even more fun and more obstacles than last year.
“Battle on Buffett Beach is a 5k obstacle race in the sand at Beach Park,” said Parks & Recreation Director Darcie Crew. “There will be at least 15 obstacles including a vertical wall, hurdles, over/under trench, balance over water, rope climb, tire run, culvert crawl, rings, sand hill challenges, and much more. There will be a youth obstacle course for kids ages 6-13 years, and the main race course is available for youths ages 14-17 and adults ages 18 and up. There will be an elite race division, individual and team registration available.”
Last year’s run had 364 participants, but Crews is expecting the number to nearly double this year.
“[This event] draws people from all over the southeastern region to participate in the event, stay in our hotels, eat at our restaurants, and most importantly show off our beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast for future visits.”
There is no set number of teams that can participate in the event, and individuals can register to race in any heat of 100 people throughout the day, which will leave every 15 minutes starting at 9 a.m.
Once registered, race organizers will send bi-weekly emails to race participants starting Oct. 1 with more information, such as website address for event, info about food, after party, activities, and more.
Registration begins July 1 through the city’s website. For more information, contact the Parks & Recreation Department at 228-938-2356.
