Myrtle Beach Marathon
Registration is now open at a discounted rate for your marathon weekend, February 13th-15th! For a few days, the streets of Myrtle Beach will be transformed into a jungle scene that provides the backdrop to an unforgettable experience!
The Myrtle Beach Marathon started as a way for runners to give back. In fact, it emerged from five Myrtle Beach residents who participated in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s “Team in Training” (TNT) program. In becoming a marathon weekend, more events were added as support for additional charities. Events include the Neon Night 5K, the Ripley’s Family Fun Run, the MB Marathon, the Dasani Half Marathon, and the Marathon Team Relay. There are also post event parties to look forward to that are hosted by Ripley’s and House of Blues. Today, each marathon event supports one or more charities including the Leukemia and Lymphoma society of South Carolina, the Coastal South Carolina chapter of the American Red Cross, and Horry County Schools.
Beginning in 2013, they have added the Rare Species Fund, a local, non-profit wildlife conservation group, to the recipient list. Funding for this group is derived from The Institute for Greatly Endangered and Rare Species (T.I.G.E.R.S.), some of which you will meet during exciting animal encounters scheduled throughout the event! Also new for 2014, there will be a course time limit of 7 hours, and headphones are allowed at your own risk.
The Caravelle Resort is proud to sponsor this event by welcoming participants, guests and volunteers to huge savings. Choose from Oceanfront and Ocean View Efficiencies or Suites from $59-$69 per night! Valid dates are from Feb. 9th –Feb. 20th and a minimum night stay may be required.
