Myrtle Beach Mini Marathon

While staying at The Tropical Seas Hotel there are many activities and events going on in the Myrtle Beach area.  No matter what time of year you decide to make a trip to the area there is always something fun and exciting going on.  On October 20th and 21st there will be a Myrtle Beach Mini Marathon held.  This is a perfect time to participate in an event for a great cause and also get yourself motivated for doing a marathon.

The race is broken up into two different days with different events happening each day.  On Saturday, October 20th there will be the Coastal 5K, Doggie Dash, and High Heel Race.  Each race has a different purpose intended to go along with it.  The Coastal 5K course is a great race for anyone who is new to the sport.  The run will begin at the Race Headquarters and end in the same area.  It is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and some fresh area.

The Doggie Dash is definitely a more unique event where you will get the opportunity to have your dog join in with you.  This is a 1.5 mile doggie dash and can be a relaxing walk or a competitive race.  Overall the race will support the Grand Strand Humane Society.  The High Heel Race is one of the funniest races to experience and watch happen.  This competition isn’t just for women, if any man is feeling brave enough and up for the challenge he may participate.  The race is an 80 meter dash to the finish line and all heels must be at least 2.75 inches high.  Again the race will be supporting Grand Strand Humane Society.

On Sunday is when the real race begins with the mini half marathon.  For all of the information be sure to check in with an employee at Tropical Seas.
