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.
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?

There is something we all have in common: we all love running! But we all found our love of running in different ways. When did you fall in love with running?
People often ask Jerry and I how the Starting Strides program began. The idea came to me the same place where most of my ideas come from: on a running. For those of you who don’t know, Starting Strides is a program through that J&A Racing Foundation that makes running accessible to students who have barriers that prevent them from participating in the Operation Smile Shamrock Final Mile.

At J&A Racing we think our races are the best. To prove we aren’t biased, we asked one of our runners to recap her experience on race day. Meet Melody — she ran her best race at the Chartway Norfolk Harbor Half Marathon by helping a friend achieve her goals.
Many runners avoid yoga because they don’t think they have the flexibility or balance to try it. But how can you improve those areas if you don’t try?
