Mile Matters by J&A Racing
2020 was a year like no other, but it validated what we already know. Runners are resilient, and they are willing to show up. As we look back at all we have been through since the Yuengling Shamrock Marathon Weekend was canceled six days prior to the event, we are forever grateful for our running community and all of the support we have received. Our runners showed up big! Not only did our participants run thousands of miles this year, they made sure there was meaning to their miles by supporting all of our charity partners.
“It is remarkable to see our runners come together to support various causes that we partner with,” said Amy Frostick, Co-Owner and Race Director. “In a year where we haven’t been able to meet at the start line and give high fives at the finish, it is amazing to see that runners still dig deep and donate towards amazing causes that have direct impact right here in Hampton Roads.”
