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.

After finishing, neon wands will help light the night sky while our runners enjoy front row access to live entertainment from BULLFROG.
