Myrtle Beach Mini Marathon
October 19, 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. 19, 2013 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. 18.
Registration is now open. For more information, go to www.RunMyrtleBeach.com.
