2013 Myrtle Beach Marathon

2013 Myrtle Beach Marathon - Tropical Seas HotelThe Myrtle Beach Marathon brings thousands of runners to the Myrtle Beach area each year, and registration for the 2013 Marathon begins in August. This amazing event is a fun and challenging running experience in one of America’s favorite vacation destinations. Those coming from out of town should consider staying at the beautiful oceanfront Tropical Seas Hotel for some truly comfortable accommodations, and make this marathon a memorable one.

The BI-LO Myrtle Beach Marathon is scheduled for February 16, 2013 and the start time will be 6:30 AM. The Spirit Airlines Runners Expo takes place on February 14, 2013 and is open to the public. Here participants will be able to pick up their race bibs, runner shirts, and check out vendor booths for race sponsors. The Expo takes place at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center, which is just a short drive from the Tropical Seas Hotel, and parking will be $3.

A post race party will held at The House Of Blues near Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach. This event is free for all participants who registered in any of the weekend’s great events as well as all of the helpful event volunteers. This post race party is restricted to those over the age of 21. Your race bib will not grant you access to this event, you must pick up your ticket at the Spirit Airlines Runners Expo. If you did not participate in any events, do not worry, you can still purchase a ticket for $20. From 5:00PM to 7:00PM enjoy free food, refreshments and entertainment. After you have spent all of your remaining energy at the post race party, come relax back at the Tropical Seas Hotel in either of our oceanfront pools, hot bubbly jacuzzi, or simply have a much needed rest in our comfortable guest rooms.

This great event would not be possible without the help of the hundreds of volunteers. If you are not a runner, you can still participate by volunteering your time to pass out shirts, water, nourishment, and medical aid. This event has no paid staff so getting enough volunteers is crucial to making all of these events run smoothly.

The Tropical Seas Hotel has been a favorite of those participating in the Myrtle Beach Marathon for years. Our helpful staff and great amenities make the Tropical Seas Hotel the perfect place to be before and after the event. Book your room, and start planning your trip to South Carolina for the 2013 Myrtle Beach Marathon!
