In 2016, visit our new home for the HTC Runner’s EXPO, the 100,000 square foot Myrtle Beach Sports Center. Located just west of the former Expo site at the Sheraton Myrtle Beach Convention Center, the Sports Center has seating for over 2,000 spectators with indoor sporting events such as basketball, volleyball, dance, cheerleading, archery and, of course, athletic expositions similar to the HTC Runner’s Expo.

The Myrtle Beach Marathon has a fast, flat ocean course famous for new PR’s and qualifying times for races like the Boston Marathon. Not only is this event a great idea for you personally, but the Myrtle Beach Marathon started as a way for runners to give back! In fact, the Myrtle Beach Marathon emerged from five Myrtle Beach residents’ participation in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s “Team in Training” (TNT) program. In becoming a Marathon weekend, more events were added as was support for additional charities. Today, each Marathon event supports one or more charities including the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of South Carolina (since its first event in 1998), the Coastal South Carolina Chapter of the American Red Cross, and Horry County Schools.
