We have had a tremendous relationship with the City of Virginia Beach over the years and will continue to stay engaged with the city and all of our local partners to explore potential opportunities that may arise in the future.

We are grateful to the Virginia Beach and Hampton Roads metropolitan area, its officials and its citizens for hosting us over the years and would like to thank our participants, volunteers, partners, spectators, and the local community for their support in making this such a memorable event.
