This amazing half marathon course features the best of Myrtle Beach with over 5 miles of oceanfront running! From its pristine parkways  to some of the nation’s most visited beaches, the course takes you on a tour of one of America’s most scenic beach communities. 

Start at Coastal Grand Mall (near Dillard’s) and head north on Grissom Parkway all the way to 62nd Ave N and take a right. At the end of the road, turn right onto Ocean Blvd and head south for over 5 miles of beachfront views. Get on the boardwalk with just about 1/2 mile left and finish right at the Pavilion in the heart of Myrtle Beach and feet away from the sand.  Did we not say this course is flat and fast, fast, fast!  With only 7 turns throughout the entire 13.1 miles you could not make it much faster!!
