Racing enthusiasts will have the chance to brave the chilly air with ten thousand of their closest friends at Myrtle Beach's biggest race event of the year. And the 20th annual Myrtle Beach Marathon is in March in 2017, racers will enjoy spending time with the sport they truly love - running! Marathon organizers also love supporting area charities, such as the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of South Carolina, the Coastal South Carolina Chapter of the American Red Cross and Horry County Schools.
Another thing competitors will love is the fast, flat course that is perfect for setting personal records on and qualifying times for races such as the Boston Marathon. The event hosts both a full- and half-marathon that takes runners through downtown Myrtle Beach, into The Market Common and down along Ocean Boulevard before ending at TicketReturn.com Field, home of the Myrtle Beach Pelicans.
