Myrtle Beach is a popular beach and resort area along the South Carolina Coast, about 100 miles north of Charleston. Running in Myrtle Beach centers around the 60 miles of uninterrupted coastline, and a festive 1.2 mile boardwalk. The beach is wide and runnable, with fairly reliable packed sand near the water. Other good places to run in Myrtle Beach include Huntington Beach State Park, Murrells Inlet, the North Myrtle Beach Park & Sports Complex, and a loop around the Market Common. There are also some lovely residential areas for running. Trail runners will enjoy the Horry County Bike and Run Park.
A car is generally needed to get around Myrtle Beach. And, note that summers here are hot and humid, with near daily thunderstorms. Note we also have extensive running guides for Charleston, Beaufort, Kiawah Island.
