More than 500 runners and walkers participated in the 2013 Race for the Inlet on Saturday, helping raise money for community improvement by Murrells Inlet 2020.
Beginning at Morse Park Landing, this year’s record-setting event had contestants from all over the Grand Strand and South Carolina and more than 120 visitors from 20 other states, said Sue Sledz, director of Murrells Inlet 2020.
Sledz said volunteer efforts throughout the year help the organization improve the community. The group has been working since 1997 with goals to improve infrastructure and beautification, provide environmental education and preserve the creek and the traditions surrounding it.
Projects include the Marsh Walk, a bike bridge, Morse Park Landing and the Jetty View Walk.
