J&A Racing held the Crawlin’ Crab Half Marathon, 5K, Kids Kilometer and Craft Brew Fest presented by Bon Secours In Motion in Hampton, Virginia on October 1-2. The event had close to 3,000 participants for the whole weekend.
J&A Racing events are known for their fun, festive, and family oriented atmosphere. The weekend included three separate races: Half Marathon, 5K and 1K. Several participants took on the Shell Yeah! Challenge where they participated in both the 5K and Half Marathon, earning them a total of 3 medals. The race weekend featured flat, fast courses, which ran through historic downtown Hampton, into beautiful old neighborhoods, and along the majestic Chesapeake Bay and Hampton Roads Harbor DJs, and radio stations provided entertainment on the courses. All Half Marathon and 5k participants received a unique medal, short sleeve technical shirt, access to the Craft Brew Fest and a finisher’s item. The outdoor Craft Brew Fest featured live music; craft brews; and Kickin’ Corn & Crab Chowder by Baker’s Crust. The weekend also featured a two-day Sports & Fitness Expo at the Hampton Roads Convention Center.
