The Anthem Shamrock Half Marathon (the official name for the 13.1-mile event in Virginia Beach’s Yuengling Shamrock Marathon) takes runners on a flat, fast out-and-back loop course through the streets of the city with the start at Cavalier Park on 42nd Street, within view of the water. The middle portion of the half marathon route offers some of the race’s most scenic views, as it unfolds both past First Landing State Park and the oceanfront, and later brings runners back the finish line at the Virginia Beach Boardwalk on 31st Street.
