Amazing Challenge Race

At Myrtle Beach State Park

Walk/race around Myrtle Beach State Park in the annual “Amazing Challenge Race” contest that covers approximately 4 to 4.5 miles. Enjoy a day of friendly competition using your wits, athleticism, and problem-solving skills to answer questions about nature, complete challenges, and solve puzzles. Cleverness and teamwork will be your only tools; no technology allowed! For a leg up in the race, make sure you are familiar with the park. Come see why we think Myrtle Beach State Park is Amazing! Teams of two must include at least one adult (18 or over), and no one under 12 years old may participate. Registration is $75 per team (no checks). Your T-shirt, bag, water bottle, participation medal, and snacks are included. Registration opens on the second Saturday in January. Email or call 843-238-0874 for more information or call the park office at 843-238-5325 by the second Saturday in February to register. The race is limited to 30 teams, so register early!
