Myrtle Beach Marathon 2009

Bi-Lo Myrtle Beach Marathon

Listed in USA Today as one of the 10 great winter marathons, the Bi-Lo Myrtle Beach Marathon and Dasani Half-Marathon will start at 6:30AM February 14th at the intersection of Grissom Parkway and 21st Avenue North in Myrtle Beach, SC. The finish line will be in the parking area of the BB&T/Coastal Field, home of the Myrtle Beach Pelicans (the Atlanta Braves Class “A” baseball team).Associated events include a Runner’s Expo on the 12th and 13th, the Ripley’s Aquarium Family Fun Run on the 13th, Post Race Party at the House of Blues on the 14th, and Bicycle Rides on the 15th.I’d say the marathon is bound to be a success – it’s already SOLD OUT! Both the Half and Full Marathon sold out four and six weeks earlier respectively than last year. It should bring somewhere between 10,000 and 15,000 people from out of town to our area.
