J & A Racing has partnered with the Old Dominion Athletic Foundation (ODAF) to host the Bon Secours in Motion ODU Big Blue 5K. This Spring event will take place in April 2015 to help celebrate and kick-off the 2015 ODU Spring Football Game at Foreman Field at S.B Ballard Stadium in Norfolk, Virginia. The 5K will take runners and walkers through the ODU Campus and have them finish in ODU’s state-of-the-art game day home of the football Monarchs, Foreman Field at S.B. Ballard Stadium. Registered participants will celebrate their finish at the Big Blue BBQ immediately after the race that will include food, beer, wine, non-alcoholic beverages, live music, and an appearance by the ODU Men’s Basketball team. Race participants are then invited to attend the ODU Football Spring Game. Registration is limited to 2000 participants.
Family members of the race participants can purchase a ticket to the Big Blue BBQ for $20 in advance or $25 the day of the event. Tickets can be purchased during your online registration or can be purchased through the ODU Ticket Office here.
* Anyone who plans on drinking beer or wine at the Big Blue BBQ following the race, MUST bring their I.D with them. If any of the event organizers suspect you are under the legal drinking age of 21, they will ask to see your I.D. If you do not have your I.D and are unable to prove that you are old enough to drink, you will not be able to drink the alcoholic beverages at the BBQ.
