The 17th Annual Myrtle Beach Marathon was a huge success drawing over ten thousand running enthusiasts, family members and friends to the Grand Strand over Valentine's Day weekend. Planning for the 18th year of Myrtle Beach's first and longest running major endurance event is under way and we expect this incredible community event to continue its growth in 2015!


On behalf of the volunteer board of the 17th Annual Myrtle Beach Marathon, THANK YOU! Thank you to our participants for showing the world that the Myrtle Beach Marathon attracts a wild group of passionate runners! Thank you to the City of Myrtle Beach and the hundreds of city employees that stayed up all night to organize a flat, fast race course. Thank you to the many branches of law enforcement for providing a safe weekend of race events. Thank you to the Grand Strand Medical Community for providing medical support along all 26.2 miles. Thank you to all of the civic organizations, churches, schools, colleges and the generous Grand Strand residents for their support of this nationally recognized marathon weekend.
