Fast, flat and absolutely beautiful!

Celebrating our 17th year, the Myrtle Beach Marathon has become more than a race, it is truly a weekend of festivities With a fast course that wraps its way along the awe-inspiring Atlantic Ocean, you’ll wind your way through the famous Million Dollar Mile! This is a perfect course for your friends and family to get involved.

Run with a purpose!

Runners love to make a difference and the MB Marathon supports the Rare Species Fund. This international wildlife conservation program brings tigers, chimpanzees, an elephant and many other animals to interact with throughout the Marathon weekend and our race winners have the chance hold and photograph their favorite wild animal.

More than a Marathon!

Cascading for 60 miles along the majestic Atlantic Ocean, the Grand Strand attracts over 14 million visitors per year and was voted “World’s Best Beach” by Yahoo! Travel.

A perfect destination for a girl’s retreat!

Everything you need to create an unforgettable Women’s Weekend is within reach.

Make a difference in the world!

The Rare Species Fund was established to provide funding to critical, on-the-ground, international wildlife conservation programs. MB Marathon runners continuously search for ways to improve the world and this weekend will make you feel a charitable connection.
