The warmer weather of March opens the doors to many of the businesses that closed for the winter. But you can still find great rates on Vacation Rental properties before the spring breakers arrive. March your family to the Myrtle Beach area this March to experience some of the best events Myrtle Beach has to offer!
Myrtle Beach Marathon
March 2-4, 2017
Come celebrate the 20th year of the Myrtle Beach Marathon! The lack of any real hills, and the beautiful scenery allows for a great run! The course starts outs near Broadway at the Beach, just north of the intersection of 21st Avenue North and Robert M. Grissom Parkway. The course then departs up Grissom Parkway and down Mr. Joe White Avenue, and continues south on Kings Highway toward the Myrtle Beach Airport.
Next up is a quick turn into The Market Common area. Located at the former Myrtle Beach Air Force Base, this spot is a great place for spectators to gather and cheer runners on as they hit the halfway point. Once exiting the shopping center, runners veer onto Ocean Boulevard, where they will spend their longest stretch as they continue through the downtown area and past the SkyWheel.
At this point half marathoners hit the finish line! Those going the full stretch will experience the most scenic areas of the run, with gorgeous ocean views along the sandy coast. Racers then pass the Grand Dunes area before turning home back down Kings Highway. Racers will then meet cheering crowds at the finish line in the parking lot of Ticketreturn.com Field. See the course first hand in this time-lapse video with map.
The marathon is expecting perfect weather this year, making Myrtle Beach the ultimate destination for racers and their families. Visit mbmarathon.com to register for this fun event!
