Myrtle Beach Marathon
For one weekend each February, thousands of visitors head to Myrtle Beach for good times on the beach and for different kind of fun in the sun. The Myrtle Beach Marathon is a full marathon race, a half-marathon race, a 5K, a Fun Run and Party, and an exposition event. The race starts and ends near Broadway at the Beach and BBT Field. The loop largely takes you down Highway 16 and Ocean Boulevard at a time of day when the early morning sun is casting its first rays of the day on the beach. You can take in some truly impressive views of the beach while you run!
