    This course is flat and fast! And, you run over 5 miles on Ocean Blvd.! Just glance over and there is the water and the finish line is on the boardwalk! I participated in this race for several years before joining the staff of NS Promos and am very fortunate to be the Race Director and continue making this race great! It’s a must do!

    This is a flat and fast race. The medal is awesome and the race is well put on. Plenty of refreshments at the end and running the last segment on the boardwalk is fun. The course itself is a tad boring but the spectators are great. No real ocean views until you round that last corner.

    The Myrtle Beach Mini Marathon boasts of a course that is flat and fast with a mere seven turns. While we didn’t count the turns, we don’t doubt the truth of that claim. The race began at the Coastal Grand Mall, ensuring that there was plenty of parking for all runners, and that no one had to spend hours searching for a parking spot, In addition, the Hilton Garden Inn is a stone’s throw away. On a cool morning, runners can take advantage of the hotel lobby and indoor restrooms. We stayed at the Hilton for this year’s Myrtle Beach Mini Marathon and enjoyed being able to roll out of bed and onto the course. In previous years we’ve stayed near the finish line (right on the beach) where hotels are plentiful. This allowed us to change out of wet clothes and into dry ones before taking advantage of the Beer Garden. No matter where you stay, the Myrtle Beach Mini Marathon will make for an easy race experience. Flat course and plenty of hotel rooms close to the finish line? What else is there?

    Sounds like a fast flat course and a great reason to visit Myrtle Beach... though I always wonder about half marathons that include "mini" in their name, since 13.1 miles ain't no mini effort! But I always love being able to roll out of bed within sight of the start line, there's nothing better. Congrats Bullards and thanks for the thoughtful review! LESS

    Check out the blog post for this race. Another great race venue. This was my second time doing this race. The first time I did this race in 2011 was my first half marathon. It was nice to return and see how much I had improved.

    Super flat & fast course! Beautiful run along Myrtle Beach. Starts at the Coastal Grand Mall and ends at the old Pavilion. The last half mile is serpentine and then the last tenth is on the boardwalk.
