Myrtle Beach Marathon 20TH ANNIVERSARY RACE DATES ANNOUNCED!
The 19th Annual Myrtle Beach Marathon was a huge success drawing over ten thousand running enthusiasts, family members, and friends to the Grand Strand over the three-day race weekend, March 3-5, 2016. Typically run in mid-February, the change of date for this year’s race proved to be a smart move and planning for the 20th year of Myrtle Beach’s first and longest running major endurance event is under way.
