Runners will be able to pick up their race bibs, runner shirts, as well as visit sponsor and vendor booths in the exhibition area. Official marathon merchandise will also be available for purchase.   The marathon originally emerged from five Myrtle Beach residents' participation in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's "Team in Training" (TNT) program. As it turned from a day into a Marathon weekend, more events were added as was support for additional charities. Today, each Marathon event supports one or more charities including the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of South Carolina (since its first event in 1998), the Coastal South Carolina Chapter of the American Red Cross, and Horry County Schools.   At the same time you register for the Myrtle Beach Marathon it’s a good idea to secure your lodging.
