Shamrock Weekend Marathon
|via November Project
On March 15 to 17, 25,000 runners from every part of the county will descend on Virginia Beach for the Shamrock Weekend Marathon. Joggers of all ages and skill levels are drawn to the waterfront location, which makes a scenic course for the competitions.
Even if you aren’t a runner, the event will be fun because of the entertainment associated with it. You can enjoy live music at the finish line, Irish Stew provided by Murphy’s Irish Pub, and a two-day Sports & Fitness Expo.
Those who would like to participate in the marathon may register and pick up a packet at the Convention Center at 1000 19th Street.
Several local companies offer wild horse tours to the Outer Banks to see beautiful Spanish Mustangs. The excursions afford views of the North Carolina landscape and offer interesting information.
On a chilly winter’s day, a delightful way to warm up is to drop into May’s Parlor for a cup of coffee and a freshly baked sweet treat. You can choose from breakfast sandwiches, cookies, scones, muffins and croissants. The enterprise is near the boardwalk, which makes it a convenient stop when exploring the waterfront.
