Description

XTERRA Myrtle Beach is proud to be celebrating its 5th year.

The world-renowned name in off-road triathlon comes to the family-oriented beach vacation destination and the result is XTERRA Myrtle Beach. This race has become a favorite in the XTERRA American Tour. The race begins with a unique boat ride to the starting line and current assisted swim in the Intracoastal Waterway. The bike portion will surprise many, with a challenging and technical course that will engage racers over two laps to cover 14 miles. The single track is a hidden gem among our coastal geography! The run is a true mix of terrain covering 5 miles. Drawing beginners and experienced racers alike, the XTERRA Myrtle Beach is a race like none other.

Course specifics

The swim will be a 1000-meter Intracoastal Waterway swim. There is a slight current and the swim start will be adjusted so swimmers will have the current with them. The swim is highlighted by a unique water taxi ride (pontoon boats) to the swim start.

The bike will consist of (2) 7 mile loops (14 miles) at the Horry County Bike and Run Park. Locals have nicknamed the trail the “Hulk” because it resembles the twist and turns of the Hulk Roller Coaster Ride. The trail is fast and flowing single track. Many athletes will be surprised at the amount of elevation changes that are on this trail considering it’s along the coast.

The run is a 5 mile, 2 loop lollipop out and back. Most of the trail is shady and there is a variety of terrain including a twisty tight trail, sand, a steep switch back, and flat gravel road.
