Giveaway closed – Winner Pam.
One race that has been on my bucket list for awhile is the Yuengling Shamrock Marathon and 1/2 Marathon in Virginia Beach. I am now officially signed up to make that happen for 2012 and would like to give one of you a free entry!! You don’t have to run with me I promise :) but I will make you meet up for a photo at the Expo because that is what bloggers do after all.
We used to always to a St Pat’s run in Kansas City, but I remember seeing pictures of this one every year and thinking now that is how you do a fun race! If you are considering your 2012 race calendar I fully think this one should be on it (read Denise’s report from 2010 and Jogger’s Life from 2011)!! Highlights:
Yuengling Beer and Murphy’s Irish Pub stew at the finish line
Scenic course with finish on Virginia Beach
Surprise for finishers as part of the 40th year celebration (ok just found out it is a SWEET hoodie!)
Fun atmosphere! Seriously have you seen the costumes, I mean this is a St Pat’s race!
An official green race! You know I am all about supporting anything that is great for the environment and Shamrock has been certified green.
You can register anytime on ShamrockMarathon.com for the full, half, 8k or go crazy and do multiple races!! There is also a children’s run, so if you want to make it a family affair that is easy (just don’t share the beer).
