Virginia > East Beach Norfolk Half Marathon & 5K
Norfolk, VA



Saturday, February 27, 2010

Event Details

More than 600 runners came out to take part in the winter 2008 running of Virginia's East Beach Norfolk Half Marathon & 5K, which takes runners on a course along the waterfront on East Beach Drive through this coastal city's downtown areas, along an out-and-back course through the city that's open to both runners and walkers.

After being cancelled in 2009, the race is being run again in 2010. Mostly flat and fast thanks to its route near the water, the race also features brief stretches at the start and the finish of the race through some of the scenic neighborhoods near the East Beach Club House near Norfolk's Little Creek Cove.

The event also includes a 5K run/walk and a children's half-mile race and features a starting time of 8:00 AM. Organizers keep the course open for three hours, and anyone still on the course after that time is asked to complete their run on the sidewalk.

Race Weather & Climate

Located near the mouth of Virginia's Chesapeake Bay, about 93 miles southeast of its capital Richmond, the city of Norfolk tends to experience cold to occasionally mild weather conditions in the winter, with February temperatures averaging between 35°F and 51°F. Precipitation averages just over 3 inches during the month.
