The Biggest Loser Coming to Myrtle Beach

Myrtle Beach has been chosen to kick off NBC’s inaugural Biggest Loser Event Challenge.

Personalities from the hit NBC weight-loss reality show are headed to the Grand Strand on Sept. 25. This announcement comes nearly a week after they held a casting call in Columbia.

The Biggest Loser Event Challenge is a series of nationwide 5K and one mile events designed to inspire Americans of all fitness levels to get moving with others.

The series will kick off in Myrtle Beach with 16 more events to be announced for 2011. The event will be filmed by NBC for a two hour Biggest Loser special to be aired in November.

The Myrtle Beach 5K will start at 8 a.m. on Ocean Boulevard between 8th and 9th Avenues North and run south along Ocean Boulevard through Family Kingdom Amusement Park with the finish line on the brand new Myrtle Beach boardwalk between 8th and 9th Avenues North. The one mile challenge starts at 8:30 a.m. and will be a shorter version of the same start and finish pattern.

The Biggest Loser’s popular trainer Bob Harper and other past contestants of the reality show will be on hand after the challenge for meet and greets. All participants will receive a Biggest Loser Event Challenge T-shirt and finisher medal.

The Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce will host a free Fall Fitness Festival and Expo open to the public following the event activities until 7 p.m.

Please note: You will not be able to register on the day of the event – all participants must register in advance of the event online through September 22nd or in person on the evening prior to the event on September 24th in Myrtle Beach from 4:00 – 8:00 PM.
