Lace up your running shoes and take part in the events of the Myrtle Beach Mini Marathon weekend, including the Coastal 5K & GoRuck and Myrtle Beach Mini Marathon & GoRuck. All events take place on Oct. 14 at the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, or participants can join a virtual event.
Both the 5K and Mini Marathon step off at 7 a.m. on 8th Avenue North and finish on the oceanfront Myrtle Beach Boardwalk. The Mini Marathon includes more than 5 oceanfront miles to keep you motivated on your run.
Sporting a surfing theme and coveted surfboard finisher medals, the Mini Marathon is a must-do race in South Carolina. The course is flat and fast with gorgeous views, live entertainment and a fun post-race party.

Rucking participants must wear a ruck or backpack with a weight of at least 10 pounds for runners 100 pounds or less or 20 pounds for those over 150 pounds. GoRuck participants must complete the half marathon in 3.5 hours or less.
