Participants will start at the Pawleys Island Nature Park and head south on Myrtle Avenue along the Pawleys Island Creek. 1 Mile participants will continue along the course for half a mile and then turn back toward the finish line.
5K participants will turn around in the Bird’s Nest area of the island while 8K runners will continue down Springs Avenue and enjoy a stunning ocean view.

Pawleys Island is a barrier island less than 4 miles long and mostly 1 house wide, separated from the mainland by a beautiful salt marsh and accessible by two short causeways. It is located 70 miles north of Charleston and 25 miles south of Myrtle Beach and is known as one of the oldest summer resorts on the East Coast. Our race dates are chosen based on the tide charts for the season.
