PARKING & SHUTTLES

Plenty of parking is available on Saturday, March 7 for participants and spectators of the Myrtle Beach Marathon, Half Marathon, and 5K at Broadway at the Beach (1325 Celebrity Cir, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577). Shuttles will run continuously from Breakers Resort and Ocean Reef Resort to the start line beginning at 5AM.

All 5k runners will need to then take a shuttle from the Broadway at the Beach parking lot to the start line. The shuttle will pick up runners near the corner of John Q. Hammond and 21 Avenue N. All runners for the Full and Half marathon should plan to be in the start area by 6:30am to ensure time for security check at the entrance of the start chute. Please plan to arrive in plenty of time to park and make your way to the start area. If you need a handicap shuttle for race day please contact us prior to race day at info@mbmarathon.com.

There will be port-a-johns as you make your way from the parking lot to the start area as well as near the start line.
