Dirty Myrtle Mud Run
May 23, 2015
Carolina Forest, Myrtle Beach
Neat freaks need not apply! The Dirty Myrtle Mud Run has quickly grown into one of the Grand Strand's most popular running events. Part obstacle course, part race, all muddy! Mix well, stir and season with just a touch more mud. That's the recipe for a challenging and fun run. And as a rule of thumb, bring a change of clothes!
The fall meet is scheduled for May 23, 2015 at the Waterbridge Plantation in Carolina Forest. The 3-mile course has ponds, ditches, hills and even a log and tire run. Just think of it as taste of what boot camp is like!
For children, the course is a mile long.
So, get a team of friends and family together, and come on out. We'll all get muddy together! For more information, go to DirtyMyrtleMudRun.com.
Myrtle Beach Mini Marathon
October 17-18 2015, 2014
If February is a little too cool for you, there's always the fantastic fall temperatures that runners enjoy when they take part in the Myrtle Beach Mini Marathon. This year's meet is scheduled for Oct. 17-18, 2015 and promises to be better than ever. The course has been revamped to include five miles of oceanfront running. What could be a better motivator than seeing the majestic Atlantic Ocean as you make your way toward the finish line?
The 13.1-mile course starts at Coastal Grand Mall, takes you north on Grissom Parkway, on to Ocean Boulevard and finally finishes at the Myrtle Beach Pavilion. Oh yeah, it's also flat and features only seven turns, making for a runner's dream come true!
For those not-too-serious runners, there's a Coastal 5K and Doggie Dash on Oct. 17.
Registration is now open. For more information, go to www.RunMyrtleBeach.com.
The Color Run
November 9, 2013
Broadway at the Beach, Myrtle Beach
What's your favorite color?
It doesn't matter, because chances are you're going to wear all the colors of the rainbow once you cross the finish line of The Color Run, which is coming to Broadway at the Beach in Myrtle Beach on Nov. 9, 2013.
This 3.1-mile run is known as the "Happiest 5K on the Planet." And how could it not be? At each kilometer, runners are covered from head to toe in a variety of different colors.
The Color Run only has two rules: wear white at the starting line, and finish plastered in color.
This fun-filled race, which promotes healthiness, happiness and individuality, had its debut event in January 2012. By the end of 2013, it is expected to grow from 50 to 100 events, and from 600,000 participants to over a million.
The Surf and Turf Triathlon Myrtle Beach will feature a with-the-current ocean swim, a flat and fast bike ride along the world-famous "Myrtle Beach Strip" and a flat run along the newly constructed Myrtle Beach Boardwalk. With a finish in the heart of Myrtle Beach at Pyler Park, this triathlon will give athletes a chance to race in the middle of one of the world's most famous beaches.
