It’s no secret how much I love, love, love the Myrtle Beach State Park. Seriously, if they’d let me live there, I would. Even in the winter, it’s full of fun sights and sounds. A few weeks ago I got to enjoy watching horses on the beach and found a starfish. There is something new every.single.time. So imagine how excited I was when I read about one of their newest events – The Amazing Myrtle Beach State Park Challenge Race! It combines two of my favorite things – running and, obviously, the Myrtle Beach State Park.
On Saturday, March 1st, two-person teams will compete in a 6-8 mile walk/run race that covers the entire park and is based on answering questions, solving riddles, and doing challenges. Participants will only be given a map of the park, not the course. The use of technology is prohibited.
For more information, check out the park’s site here.
