Run in the sun with the Myrtle Beach Marathon. Great for beginner and experienced runners alike, the course winds through the town with only 25 feet of elevation gain. Come for the chance to run a PB or for the post-race party.

  • Did the Marathon in 2019

    Its a pretty flat course for anyone not from Florida. It was a nice course well supported. Water/Gatorade stations were spaced every 2 miles. The shirts were amazing and the after party was awesome, except for the fact that they ran out of beer. Really, no beer to celebrate my PR? I guess the sign was right, the half marathoners drank the beer. As previous reviews, the wind can be a factor. This time was not too windy so theres that. Weather was really nice but it was high in humidity. Outside of the race itself, the city is also super nice!I would do this race all over again as long as they promise to have beer at the end.
  • Did the 5k in 2019

    Nice race: course, preparation, atmosphere and management of the race all top notch. Course is fast! I enjoy this race; have only done the 5k thus far in between scheduled longer races, and cheered on and supported others who were doing the longer distances. I plan to do the half next year. The one thing that is kind of a downer is how the runners are so separated from their family and friends. Would be great to somehow improve the intimacy of the event; supporters seem so removed from the participants.
  • Did the 5k in 2019

    Overall great event. Only advice is to do heats for the 5k run. The first portion of the course is too narrow for the entire field to start together.
