The Battle of Buffett Beach is going down this weekend in Pascagoula. The City has been busy building obstacles, ensuring all the awards, medals, t-shirts and materials are ready to go. Pascagoula has also been busy coordinating with Jackson County Road Dept. and Jackson County Solid Waste Dept. to get the sand obstacles ready on the beach and the tires delivered for the course. Sponsors play a key role in the race as well. Brock Services, LLC had donated scaffolding for the race start and finish lines as well as a few obstacles. JE Borries, Inc. has donated the pilings for the obstacles and many other sponsors have provided funding to help offset some costs of the race.
“Battle on Buffett Beach is a sand run/obstacle race that anybody can participate in. We have a youth course for kids 6-13 and a main race course for youths 14-17 and adults 18+. The event brings people from all over the region to enjoy beautiful Pascagoula for the weekend. We are excited about this year’s race and appreciate all of our participants and sponsors. We look forward to seeing everyone on the battleground,” says Darcie Crew from the city of Pascagoula.
