Virginia Beach – Armed Services YMCA Mud Run
August 8-9th – 6AM Parking Opens
We’ve been getting MUDDY and raising money to help the junior enlisted military families in Hampton Roads for 14 years! All proceeds stay right here to provide enrichment programs for local families.
The ASYMCA Mud Run is the most intense 8K on the East Coast. It consists of 5 miles of sand, woods, water hazards, obstacles, & mud pits. You’ll be grunting like a muddy gator towards the finish line!
You don’t have to be in the military to race. The race is open to the public. You just have to be tough as gator!

Norfolk – South Norfolk Jordan Bridge River Run
October 12, 8AM
Join us Sunday October 12, 2014 for the third annual South Norfolk Jordan Bridge River Run. The Jordan Bridge offers a convenient, alternative way to cross the Elizabeth River between South Norfolk (Chesapeake) and Portsmouth. Modern in both engineering and design, it replaced the existing Jordan Bridge that was closed in November 2008. The 5,375-foot-long, 169 foot high bridge features two 12-foot-wide traffic lanes, two 8-foot-wide shoulders and an 8-foot-wide pedestrian sidewalk. The pedestrian sidewalk is separated from traffic by a concrete barrier. The 5K race course will proceed out and back over the 169 foot bridge span making it the most challenging race course in the area treating you to panoramic views of Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake and Portsmouth from the top.
