This was a great small town race. Scenery was great and volunteers and course support were amazing. Swag was awesome. It was a bit hilly, but if you like a challenging course that is also beautiful and well supported, this is your race. I even me the Race Director (she delivered my age group award personally) and there was a lot of thought and planning put into this race. I would 100% recommend this one! You will not be disappointed.

Rolling hills, mostly on a greenway. Perfect weather, beautiful fall race. Great medal and t shirt. There is an option for a challenge as well for the weekend, a 5k and half marathon options. Challenge is the 5k Friday night and either half/full Saturday. Volunteers were great, it was very organized too! Highly recommend this one!

I love all events that J &A Racing puts on and Shamrock is one of my all time favorite events. They handled the logistics of this “Covid Friendly” race well. The communication was great, support was great, swag was amazing, and it is oceanfront. The wind was the only negative thing about the weekend. This was my 3rd time running in person there (previously ran the half only)and the weather can be a bit iffy in March there. But it was so much fun!

Views were absolutely beautiful. It was a small race (maybe smaller due to Covid) so there were some lonely spots on the course. Elevation was no joke, but overall it was a great race. Beautiful medal as well.
