About The Myrtle Beach Mini Marathon
The Myrtle Beach Mini Marathon is a half marathon race held each year in the beautiful coastal town of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. This year’s event takes place on 14 October 2023 and will be sure to draw runners from all over the country.
The route for this 13.1 mile course winds through some of the most stunning scenery in Coastal Carolina, highlighting both its natural beauty and vibrant beachfront culture. Runners will start their journey at Grand Park near The Market Common shopping area before heading east along Ocean Boulevard, where they’ll have breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean throughout much of their run. After making their way past popular tourist destinations such as the SkyWheel and Plyler Park, runners will turn around and make their way back to Grand Park for an exciting finish line celebration with friends and family waiting!
October weather in Myrtle Beach can vary greatly but it typically remains mild during this time of year with temperatures ranging between 65-80 degrees Fahrenheit (18-27 Celsius). It also tends to be quite humid which can make running more challenging than usual; however that doesn’t stop locals or visitors alike from enjoying this incredible half marathon experience!
Crowds are usually large when it comes to races like these as locals come out in full force to cheer on participants throughout their run. In addition, there are usually several water stations set up along the course which provide runners with additional energy boosts if needed – always appreciated by those taking part! Furthermore, special activities such as music performances or merchandise tents are often available at certain points throughout the race further adding to its overall atmosphere.
