Running Myrtle Beach

Lace up your sneakers! Myrtle Beach is ready to run!


Diva Half Marathon

May
North Myrtle Beach

This one is all about girl power! The Divas Half Marathon and 5K Series gives women the opportunity to look their absolute best while also setting personal-best times. And once the race is over, organizers will make you feel like the princess you know you are. All participants will receive a large medal that's the very definition of "bling," not to mention roses and a champagne toast. And while you're running, don't forget to look absolutely fabulous with a boa and tiara.

And these divas will look their best as the sprint by the best that North Myrtle Beach has to offer. Namely, its gorgeous beaches.

The Divas Half Marathon returns to North Myrtle Beach in May. Don't way until the last minute! Get registered by going to RunLikeADiva.com.

Dirty Myrtle Mud Run

May
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 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 
Myrtle Beach

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. 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..
