Expect delays on Kings Highway, Ocean Boulevard, Farrow Parkway, Grissom Parkway and various cross-streets. Plan to share the road with runners during those hours. The US 17 Bypass will not be affected by marathon activities.

The Myrtle Beach Marathon has partnered with the Rare Species Fund for International Wildlife Conservation to create a weekend filled with wild animal encounters and opportunities to connect with rare species that you’ve only seen on television. Each Marathon event supports one or more charities including the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of South Carolina since its first event in 1998, the Coastal South Carolina Chapter of the American Red Cross, and Horry County Schools. Charities directly benefit in two ways. The marathon contributes a portion of the event registration fee to each supported charity. In addition, each charity raises funds through direct contributions as well as individuals who obtain financial support for participating in marathon events. The Myrtle Beach Marathon is proud to have helped these organizations raise more than $3 million over the last 16 years.
