Excellent Experiences at Lake Fairfax FBYB!

Brilliantly sunny skies, crisp air, and gusty winds greeted close to 400 athletes yesterday at the Fall Backyard Burn kick-off at Lake Fairfax Park in Reston, VA.  Excellent experiences were abundant as racers tested themselves on a trail running course that included twisty single-track, challenging hills, and open fields.  Thanks to all the racers, volunteers, and sponsors for making the first race of the series a smashing success! 

Results are now posted.   Photos are coming soon.

Our next FBYB race is on October 26th at Fountainhead Regional Park in Fairfax Station, VA.  The course at Fountainhead offers amazing trails and huge challenge.  This race is close to being full so register today to guarantee your spot on the starting line.  Online registration is open until full or until midnight on Thursday, October 23rd, whichever comes first.  We hope to see you there.

What do racers love the Backyard Burn?

  • Beautiful, awesome, challenging courses include mostly single-track trails
  • Max field of 300-450 runners = intimate vibe with fun, healthy, like-minded people
  • May seems like a small thing but these races are well organized and they start on time!
  • Men’s and women’s cut tees
  • Not your typical post-race spread - breakfast burritos, fresh fruit, and M&Ms - yum!
  • Awards go 5 deep in each age group.  Also, earn points to win series prizes.
  • Giveaways aplenty (ipods, cash, gift certificates, camelback, hats, tees, etc)

At this point, the Lake Fairfax race is 87% full and the other four races are currently 66-80% full.  These races have sold out for the last 7 years, so register soon to guarantee your spot on the starting line.
