J&A’s Crawlin’ Crab Half Marathon + 5K race went down in the City of Hampton where runners in the half-marathon enjoyed a scenic course through historic downtown, along the Chesapeake Bay and the Hampton Roads Harbor. The energy was off-the-charts high with volunteers posted up at every corner offering up cheers of support, water, candy and smiles from ear to ear.
What could be better than that? Well…fancy medals for all finishers, and a Craft Brew Fest with live music, food (Kickin’ Corn and Crab Chowder compliments of Baker’s Crust.) and ice cold brews!
For the 13.1 mile half marathon, Jpixx intern Will Clarke captured footage on bike and pedaled nearly the entire course – while Jon and Dominique blanketed downtown Hampton with delicious race coverage. Meanwhile, Nate the Snake stationed himself near mile-marker 7 at the Harbor and Karla took the start and finish line. Everyone enjoyed the party afterwards 🙂
Jpixx even brought out the movi (we need a name for this cool guy) to capture some cool shots during and after the race. Most importantly, we got a chance to interview the runners, their families and locals enjoying the festivities too.
