Murrells Inlet is the quieter side of Myrtle Beach, with a couple of good options for running. Just across the inlet from Huntington Beach State Park, the beach itself is quiet and lovely for running, quite wide and with areas of firm sand (tidally dependent). It’s also possible to run along Waccamaw Drive for several miles, which runs into Ocean Blvd. heading north. This is a good option in the area for a long, flat road run, since there’s not too much traffic. The views are mainly of the beach houses, with only occasional water views.
- Waccamaw Drive to Ocean Drive is 5-6 miles one-way; Several miles of beach running possible
