The OSPREY

The Swim

The courses for the 1 and 2 mile open water swim parallel the beach in Ocean Springs, with the 2 mile turnaround just beyond the iconic Ocean Springs-Biloxi bridge. The water is perfect for the first time open water swim participant, with the beach always in sight and little tidal action.  The race will also appeal to the seasoned open-water swimmer, as we use chip timing with an in-water start.


The Run

The scenic 10K course starts and finishes in front of Ft. Maurepas park in Ocean Springs.  Runners head first toward the harbor, turn around and run along the beach toward the bridge, then cross over to Biloxi and back, and finish again in front of Ft. Maurepas park.  The course is well marshalled with several water stations along the way.

The Fun

Our credo is, if you are going to get up on a Saturday morning and push yourself, there should be a great payoff at the end. We live by this credo, so after the race we make sure you get some great food and drink with a chance to relax and recap your morning. We also make sure that everyone leaves with one the best swag bags in the region!
