The Story behind the 2020 Shamrock Mural

When brainstorming ideas for enhancements for the 2020 Yuengling Shamrock Marathon Weekend, one idea became crystal clear. We needed to showcase the talent of our Creative Director, Josh Wade.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

The City of Virginia Beach has a lot to consider when making decisions including the Yuengling Shamrock Marathon Weekend. We respect their process, but we can not keep our runners waiting any longer. As a company of runners, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Yuengling Shamrock Marathon Weekend. This decision has been made out of concern for our runners, volunteers, spectators, and community. While this was a very tough decision, we believe it is the right one. Our top priority is always the health and safety of everyone involved in our events.

Training for Shamrock

J&A Racing Ambassador, Steph Rice, is currently training for the Yuengling Shamrock Marathon. We asked her to take a few minutes to describe her training. Who can relate? What has your training looked like?

The Last Long Run

As you head into your last long training run, our owner and race director Jerry Frostick has a few tips for you. It is important to not only be physically ready for race day but also mentally ready.

Next Generation of Runners

We asked our ambassador, Stephanie Quiney, to tell us about her experience as a coach for her school’s Operation Smile Shamrock Final Mile. She may be gushing about her student runners, but everything she says is about every runner. No matter the age, running has a way of connecting us all!
