    Weather.....Winds gusting to 40 knots. Temp is not an issue but the wind was a major factor for all. It is my understanding it is like that most times. MORE

    This would’ve been a great race for me. I’m a slow runner & would’ve appreciated the flat course. But that wind got me. I was exhausted & very frustrated with the wind. It almost blew me over twice. I didn’t look around at scenery because I had to keep my head down. I did not have my usual pains (back, hip or feet), but my upper back was so tired from pushing myself. Ha Ha.
    The organization was great, expo small but good things happening. Swag was nice. The after party was very good with plenty of food even for us slow marathoners. Best: Finally options at an Expo & post race other than beer for us non beer drinkers. Yum!

    Great course and cool swag. I overheard some runners saying that it was going downhill or that the marathon was getting cheaper BUT I got a comfy long sleeve shirt and cup just for running. The medal is nice and the volunteers who handed out water/gatorade every two miles helped a lot. Generally a “quick” course but the wind slowed a lot down. Great day to run in 40-50 degree weather with the sun peaking out the second half.

    The benefits to running the Myrtle Beach Marathon:
    1. There’s almost always something to see: glimpses of the Atlantic Ocean, the towering hotels that dominate Ocean Blvd…
    2. You won’t go long between seeing spectators.
    3. The race’s technical shirts are by the same group (Race 13.1) which Competitor Magazine named as having the best race shirts. (Sorry, I know that sounds repetitive!)
    4. The finish line is in the Myrtle Beach Pelicans minor league baseball team parking lot, and the stadium is open to runners post-race. This made for a slightly more unique post-race party.
    5. The starting line, which is right in front of the Pelicans stadium, is just across the street from Broadway at the Beach. This means there is PLENTY of parking for runners and one less thing to stress out about on race day.
    6. The course is mostly flat, with only very gentle and very gradual changes in elevation.
    7. If you have spectators traveling with you, Myrtle Beach is a fairly easy place in which to drive from one location to another.

    I’ll run this race again, however I’ll likely run the half next year. 26.2 miles deserves a change of scenery for me!
