“The MSP Design Group Big Blue 5K has become a cherished event, not only for the participants who get to experience running through the ODU campus, but also for our student-athletes and coaching staff who get to support and cheer them on. It is a highlight on our calendar every year, and we are so disappointed that we are not able to share this opportunity with everyone in person this spring,” said Jason Chandler, Old Dominion University. “Our coaches and student-athletes stand with our community in this uncertain time and look forward to joining everyone for the virtual run on April 25th, as we encourage everyone to stay active and healthy at home. We wish everyone a great virtual run and stay healthy and safe!”

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.
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?
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.
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!
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.
