Friday the 13th Neon Night Race

The Myrtle Beach Marathon is hosting a Friday the 13th Neon Night race like you’ve never seen  in Myrtle Beach!

Starting at Broadway at the Beach at 7:00pm, thousands of runners of all activity levels will be wearing glow-in-the-dark race shirts and sporting Myrtle Beach Marathon runner’s headlamps to light their 5K trek through the darkness notorious for blanketing Friday the 13th activities. The LED headlamps and glowing shirts will form a 3.1 mile “river of light” that will be extraordinary to participate in or witness as a spectator. After finishing, neon wands will help light the night sky while our runners enjoy front row access to live entertainment from BULLFROG.

It is not too late! Online registration is open through February 10th at or participants can register at the HTC Runner’s EXPO on Thursday, February 12th until 9pm and Friday, February 13th until 4pm.
