The 17th annual Myrtle Beach Marathon is this Saturday, February 15, at 6:30 a.m. If you’re looking for a flat and fast 26.2 miles then this is your race! With a beautiful course that follows along the awe-inspiring Atlantic Ocean, you’ll wind your way through the famous Million Dollar Mile. This is a perfect course for your friends and family to get involved.
The entry fee for the marathon is $125. The Runner’s Expo, which is at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center, is where you’ll be able to collect bibs, t-shirts, and race info. It’ll be open on Thursday from 5-9pm and Friday from 11am-9pm.
For those looking to run a little less, there are a number of options. On Friday, there will be a Neon Night 5K and Ripley’s Family Fun Run. The Dasani Half Marathon takes place on Saturday, starting at the same time as the full.
All participants can enjoy a post-race party at the House of Blues in North Myrtle Beach where there will be free food and refreshments from 5-7pm. Tickets for guests and non-participants are $20. Awards and trophies will be available for pick-up at this event.
The Myrtle Beach Marathon, and all associated events, are produced entirely by volunteers. On race weekend, more than 1,000 volunteers are needed to aid participants in many different ways from registration, shirt hand-out, water, food and aid stations to the finish line. All volunteers receive a free Volunteer T-shirt, free entrance, food and beverage at one of the two post race parties, and the grateful thanks of the Marathon Committee and all participants.
