Do you feel like setting a new Personal Record along the edge of a continent? 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.
Charities directly benefit in two ways. The marathon contributes a portion of the event registration fee to each supported charity. In addition, each charity raises funds through direct contributions as well as individuals who obtain financial support for participating in marathon events. The charities may also use other fundraising activities such as silent auctions. The Myrtle Beach Marathon is proud to have helped these organizations raise more than $3 million over the last 17 years.
After being a part of this event, you will understand why thousands of people declare that the Myrtle Beach Marathon is so much more than a marathon. Throughout this site you will get a taste of the wild celebrations that are planned for all of our competitors, both locals and visitors. By making the decision to take part in this unforgettable weekend, you will undoubtedly walk away a changed person. Let’s begin with a quick description of this world-renowned destination:
