Feeling a Little Irish at the Yeungling Shamrock Marathon

IllumiNITE visits Virginia Beach this weekend for the Yeugling Shamrock Marathon (March 18th – 20th). We’re not Irish, but we love this event and look forward to it all year. The marathon is fun and festive, and the people are friendly.

This year’s marathon superhero is Daniel Glen a Special Operations Officer and EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) Technician in the U.S. Military. He diffuses bombs for a living. To raise awareness and funds for the EOD Warrior Foundation, Glenn will run Sunday’s half-marathon wearing an 80-pound bomb suit. He’ll also speak at the Race Expo on Friday night from 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm.

IllumiNITE has participated in this 3-day event for years. With more than 70,000 visitors, the expo is huge and well worth a visit. illumiNITE will showcase some new styles for spring and summer on Friday, March 18th from 12:00 pm – 9:00 pm, and Saturday, March 19th from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm. If you’re near the Virginia Beach Convention Center this weekend, stop by our booth to say hello. Mention this blog post and we’ll give you a little something for your trouble.

Good luck to all of the race participants!

  1. Yeees.. I purchased a men’s raincoat at the expo in Va Beach on Saturday and wore it on Sunday and that thing was a lifesaver. So lightweight and it kept me pretty dry considering the conditions (wind, rain, and cold) on Sunday. Definitely looking to purchase some other things from you guys, namely some nice running gloves, wind and water resistant so any recommendations are welcome. Again, good products and looking forward to purchasing more stuff!!
