If pounding the pavement has lost its appeal, the Surfside Beach Marathon has the antidote. All of the race distances offered, including marathon, half marathon, 5K and Kids K, are run entirely on the sand.

The Surfside Marathon gears up on Feb. 13 with a staggered start from the Stahlman Park Pavilion. Each distance has a separate 20-minute window for starting, with the marathon first and 5K last, so participants can stay socially distanced rather than bunch up at the starting line. There is also an optional early start at 5:30 a.m. for those planning to walk the marathon.
