An Ironman triathlon could be coming to Myrtle Beach.
The Ironman-sanctioned race would start with a 2.4 mile swim in the intracoastal waterway, a 112 mile bike ride on Highway 31 and then a full marathon that would start at Marina Inn at Grande Dunes and end at the Market Common.
The city put in a bid for a 5-year contract starting fall of 2014.
The plan is for the city to put up $25,000 and the Chamber of Commerce to contribute $15,000.
We should know who won the bid next month.
