At TheDigitel we try to take the guesswork out of finding the best content at the beach. Our editors have composed a short list of the best news and photos from this past weekend's marathon and other races. Take a peek below to get a good handle on how everything went down. 


First report: Assuming the forecast doesn't call for snow, we can expect to see up to 10,000 runners partaking in the 2012 Bi-Lo Myrtle Beach Marathon and related events this coming weekend. 

The marathon is on Saturday, February 18, 2012, beginning at 6:30 a.m.  While the race is not a sell-out, the Sun News reports that race organizers are expecting the biggest field of runners for this set of events yet.  If you're considering taking on the 26.2 grueling Grand Strand miles, you can still register at the runner's expo on Thursday evening or Friday morning. 

Also this weekend are the Ripley's Fun Run, RBC Bank 5K, and Dasani Half-Marathon.  And for the record, it looks like the worst runners can expect this weekend are a few raindrops.
