  Loved it!

This was my 1st marathon and my only one so far, but I'm having trouble finding one (w/out traveling too far) that I think will compare. It was definitely not a boring course, plenty of spectators, and flat, flat, flat. Highly recommend!

This is my favorite of the 4 marathon courses I have run so far (Myrtle, Charleston, Richmond, Raleigh). The course takes you through the entire (south) myrtle water front. Flat, cool and fast! This course doesn't lake in anything from Myrtle Beach highlights to water stops. The don't have a huge expo but it is a very good size. Technical shirt, blanket and flip-flop medal awaits!


Race Tips

This is a PR type of course. It is flat and fast. The biggest issue is that many go out too fast since the half shares the course until mile 12. Be careful to stay on pace or you will struggle once you hit the hardest part of the course from 16 - 22. There really isn't any hills to speak of but this is where you will hit some grades and most likely a head wind (19-20).


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

There is an endless amount of hotel space. Shop around and I am sure you will find a reasonable rate. It is very easy to get to the start/finish area off of 17 bypass (Broadway at the Beach) so you can stay anywhere. If you stay close to the beach you can even take a shuttle!

  Flat marathon, but can get windy

Review

I thought it was a pretty well run marathon. Course is a bit boring, but very, very flat. Start time is good though - 630am. The half marathon starts at the same time which makes it crowded.


Race Tips

The race is really flat. Some times it got windy, but I was with a pace group and just tucked behind some people to help break the wind.


4 / 5 Stars
