Summer 5K Series Coming to Virginia Beach Oceanfront This Summer

J&A Racing is pleased to announce the launch of their new 2016 Summer 5K Series at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront that will enhance one of the fittest cities in the nation where locals and visitors are already devoted to health and fitness. This event will take place at 8:00am every Wednesday beginning June 22nd, running for 8 weeks, to conclude on August 10th.  The start and finish will be on the Boardwalk at 31st Street, and will not only showcase the natural beauty of this pristine beach location, but also the endless possibilities of a true vacation destination that offers a wide variety of attractions, world-class hotels and restaurants, adventure sports and so much more.  Whether you are a seasoned runner, first time runner, or on vacation and looking for a fun and memorable workout, running one or all of the races in the series is for you. Registration for each 5K event will include a scenic Boardwalk run, a summer series custom beach towel and a commemorative medal!

“We are extremely excited to be offering this fun and healthy series to Virginia Beach locals and visitors in what is already one of the fittest cities in the nation, said co-race director Jerry Frostick. “We believe this new series is a perfect complement to a beautiful City that already offers so many great things to vacationers and will provide another unforgettable experience for anyone who wants to come out and join us.”

“The VBHA is very excited that J&A Racing is offering the summer series, said Diana Burke, Executive Director Virginia Beach Hotel Association. “It’s sure to add an element of “fun” to the early morning hours, mid-week during the season.  We appreciate their efforts and applaud their enthusiasm.”
