EVENT DESCRIPTION

 

Come celebrate the “Luck of the Irish” as 30,000 runners from all 50 states and several countries lace up their sneakers, adorn themselves in green and take to the streets of Virginia Beach, Virginia on March 16-18, 2018. The annual Yuengling Shamrock Marathon Weekend, first held in 1973, has expanded to become a tradition for many — young and old, residents and non-residents, athletes and spectators.

The three-day event features a Sports and Fitness Expo, races and challenges to accommodate all ages and skill levels ad a huge finish line celebration on the beach. Runners enjoy flat, fast and scenic courses along the beautiful oceanfront and recover at a huge finish line celebration that features live entertainment, ice-cold Yuengling beer and much more. There is a distance for everyone to choose from: the Yuengling Shamrock Marathon, Shamrock Marathon Relay, Anthem Shamrock Half Marathon, TowneBank Shamrock 8K, Operation Smile Shamrock Final Mile and the Leprechaun Dash.
