The Yuengling Shamrock Marathon, Half Marathon, & 8k Run    

Course Description

The Yuengling Shamrock Marathon is the oldest continuously running road race in Virginia Beach, and it will be celebrating its 40th anniversary in March, 2012! The marathon course takes you south from the Virginia Beach resort area across Rudee Inlet--the gateway to the Atlantic Ocean--and through stately neighborhoods and the Camp Pendleton military base before returning north along the oceanfront and past more welcoming residential areas. It then traverses tree-lined Shore Drive adjacent to First Landing State Park on its way to Joint Expeditionary Base, Ft. Story. In Ft. Story participants will pass by the site where John Smith, Christopher Newport, John Rolfe adn the other Jamestown colonists first landed in America in 1607, and by Cape Henry light house--the oldest standing light house in the United States. The course then heads south again for a finish on the world famous Virginia Beach boardwalk, just past the majestic figure of King Neptune, and with the beautiful Atlantic Ocean as a backdrop. The marathon course is flat and fast and the perfect place for a PR (personal record).
