MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) The Myrtle Beach Marathon may see more feet hitting the pavement in 2012.

The City of Myrtle Beach has approved a 1,000 runner expansion for the upcoming marathon in February, which will apply to the half-marathon and full marathon events.

The City expects that most of the extra runners signing up to run in the Myrtle Beach Marathon will be participating in the half-marathon event.

During the 2011 event, the City chose to expand the race route, giving more room for additional runners on the race course and the expansion of the event.
