Divas® Half Marathon & 5K series to be held in North Myrtle Beach

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC – City leaders are preparing for its third annual Divas® Half Marathon and 5K for all women.

The event will be held Friday, April 25 through Sunday, April 27 in the city.

April 25 and 26 will be devoted to participant events.

The Divas® Half Marathon & 5K will be held April 27.

The Divas® 5K will start at 7:00 a.m., and the Divas® Half Marathon will follow at 7:10 a.m. Both races will start and finish on Ocean Boulevard just south of Main Street.

The Divas® Half Marathon Series is held annually in: Honolulu, HI; Long Island, NY; San Juan, PR; San Francisco, CA; and North Myrtle Beach, SC.

The Divas® Half Marathon & 5K series is all about girl power. It embraces a full weekend experience that caters specifically to women.

The Divas® Half Marathon is a genuine 13.1 mile race. North Myrtle Beach's USA Track & Field certified course offers great views of the Atlantic Ocean, golf courses and everything else that makes the city a perfect beach community. The race is capped with a three and one-half hour time limit, and a ChronoTrack timing system is employed.

All Divas® Half Marathon finishers receive a large medal. Flowers and champagne will also await each participant at the finish line.

Tech shirts designed specifically for women will be provided to all participants in advance of the run.

Race awards go three deep in age groups, including an "Ageless" category for those who insist on keeping "the secret."

As the Divas® Half Marathon series has developed, participants have learned to throw on boas, tiaras, necklaces and other fun adornments for their runs. This provides for an instant pick-me-up, gets spectators cheering, and guarantees that perfect photo when crossing finish line.

Spectators and cheerleaders are welcome, even encouraged along the course. Being a spectator and a cheerleader for your favorite runner (or all runners if you don't have a favorite) is a great way for anyone, even men, to be part of this event. And, yes, spectators may also dress to impress.
