The race will begin at Little River Marina in Moss Point and end at Lighthouse Park in Pascagoula.

The boat classes have been designed with fairness in mind. We have worked to achieve a balance between the large variety of boats on the market and the logistics of race management. The racer is responsible for accurately describing the make, model, width and length of his/her boat when registering. This is the information the race director uses to ensure racers are in the right class. Should any dispute arise about boat classification, it will be handled by the race director. Intentionally using false information about your craft will result in disqualification. Only watercraft propelled by human(s) are allowed to participate in this event.
Children & Families
We welcome families and children to join in the fun. Juveniles under the age of 12 must be accompanied in a tandem boat with an adult. Juveniles ages 12-17 may paddle solo. In either instance, a parent or guardian must sign a waiver for the juvenile to participate.
The race will proceed in rain or shine. Be prepared for inclement weather. However, if thunderstorms occur, the event will be either delayed (same day race) or canceled entirely. If the race is canceled, racers will still receive all complimentary race bags/gifts intended for them. Registration fees will not be refunded.
Various safety/spotting boats will be out on the race course in case of any emergencies during the race. An emergency contact number will be provided at check-in for use during the race. The course has been designed for both enjoyment and to be as safe as possible, but we recognize that unplanned accidents and emergencies can occur. Please be prepared for unforeseen circumstances by having the right equipment and materials (hat, sunscreen, water, ID, etc).
The Pascagoula Run requires a Coast Guard approved PFD which must be worn throughout entire race while you and your vessel are on the water. *Any violations will be addressed by the Race Director* We strongly recommend bug spray with DEET, as both horseflies and gnats are indigenous to the area.
Alcohol & Controlled Substances
The use of alcohol/controlled substances before or during the race is prohibited and will result in disqualification.
Bib numbers are to be securely attached to the left side front of your boat and front of your PFD. Duct tape and safety pins will be provided. *Inadequate placement of your # may result in inaccurate, missing or delayed race time*
All disputes will be resolved by the race director, whose decision is final.
