The Myrtle Beach Marathon is back for 2020

The Myrtle Beach Marathon will mark its 23rd year in 2020, and what better way to celebrate than to take part in the run? Choose your distance and take off. In addition to the marathon distance, half marathon and 5K courses will also be available, as well as a Family Fun Run. The runs are flat and fast and include lovely views of the Atlantic Ocean.

There will be a Health & Wellness Expo on Friday, March 6, from 10 a.m.–8 p.m. This year’s expo will be unlike any other and will be held at Dave & Buster’s so runners can start the weekend off with some Myrtle Beach-style fun. Here you can pick up your race packet and shop some great vendor booths. Runners will receive a bib and shirt, a Free Power Card to play unlimited video games and 20 percent off food and non-alcoholic drinks. Remember that there is no race day packet pick-up.

After you cross the finish line on Saturday, celebrate in Runners Village with live music, free beer, food, vendors, awards and more. No matter which distance you opt for, this event is always upbeat and filled with fun.
