BiLo Myrtle Beach Marathon and Relay
Myrtle Beach hosted their 11th annual marathon today. It’s exciting to think that over 5,300 people ran 13-26 miles through the city this morning.
Residents of Myrtle Beach expected some headaches, but the city had preparations in place to keep congestion to a minimum, including blocking off several major streets, and posting extra police officers along the race route to keep things running smoothly and safely.
One of the main sections of the course took runners down Ocean Blvd. Owners of the oceanfront condos in Myrtle Beach enjoyed watching the marathon from their balconies. I would imagine that it was a great way to spend the morning.
With the mild winter temperatures and the active lifestyle, owning a beautiful condo in Myrtle Beach would be fantastic.
