Coastal Virginia, home of J&A Racing, is known for firsts. On April 26, 1607, some 100 English settlers landed here and established the first elective government in English America before pushing up the James River to establish Jamestown. Today, that land is known as First Landing State Park. On January 30, 2021, 250 runners will embark on J&A Racing’s first ever trail race in First Landing State Park. From sun up to sun down, participants will gather on the hour every hour to run a 5K loop completing a 50K before the sun sets.
