It is time to get fit while having fun in a picturesque part of the East Coast! Whether you consider yourself a runner, jogger or plodder, you'll love coming to Virginia Beach, VA, to compete in an upcoming road race.

March 2022: Shamrock Half-Marathon and Marathon

From March 18-20, 2022, Virginia Beach is set to celebrate 50 years of the Shamrock Marathon. Featuring a variety of distances including a full 26.2-mile marathon, 13.1-mile half-marathon and one-mile kids' run, the Shamrock Marathon is a must-attend event every year.

Although the races take place on Saturday, they are not the only way to celebrate in Virginia Beach over this festive weekend. So be sure that you take a few days off from work. It is a great "spring break" for your mind and body!


July 2022: Allen Stone Run-Swim-Run

If you have thought about tackling a triathlon but are not sure you will have time to train for the biking portion, consider entering the Allen Stone Run-Swim-Run aquathon. This Virginia Beach event is scheduled for July 16, 2022, and it takes you from the sand to the open water to the Boardwalk. It is an exhilarating journey that you will never forget!

Afterward, be sure to hang out at some of your favorite Virginia Beach sites with fellow racers. Tons of restaurants and retailers in the area would love to help you make the most of your victory lap.

September 2022: Bubble Run

Bubble bogs. Foam cannons. What could make a 5K more amazing? Bubble Runs are hitting the nation. They're probably one of the most novel of all road races in Virginia Beach, and they are ideal if you want to enter your first trotting competition.

Because the Bubble Run takes place over Labor Day weekend, you might as well make the experience a mini-vacation. Book your Deluxe Cabin or RV Site in advance, and bring the whole family to watch you dash to a bubbly finish.

October 2022: Wicked 10K and Monster Mile

Virginia Beach does spooky in the most thrilling way possible with the late October Wicked 10K and Monster Mile. Feel free to wear not just your sneakers but a full-blown costume. You'll be amazed at the way that runners deck themselves out for this seasonal race.

Don't forget to join up for post-race party fun across the Virginia Beach area. It is a fabulous way to kick off the end-of-year holidays!
