This is one of the most competitive categories of all our races.

If your military team wins, your team can display the beautiful military cup at your department for the year. Every member of the team must be a member of the military. There is a separate cup for the marathon, half marathon, and 8k.

Important Information

There will not be an awards ceremony after the races.  We will mail all awards to out of town participants and email all local participants to pick up awards.  Awards will be available approximately 4-6 weeks after the event.

J&A Racing allows double dipping in the Shamrock weekend events only. (Example) If the 3rd place overall female is also a masters participant, she can still take the first place female masters award.
