Inaugural Reservoir Relay was Epic!

Close to 150 adventurous trail runners were treated to sunny skies and beautiful scenery as they negotiated technical, hilly, and rain soaked single-track at the inaugural Reservoir Relay Trail Running Race held this past Saturday in Western Fairfax County.

This race traversed the famed Bull Run-Occoquan Trail and was divided into three linear segments measuring 5-7 miles each.  Solo racers ran the entire 18 mile course and relay teams leap frogged the three segments where the 'active' runner and the ‘on deck’ runner swapped car keys for e-punch key (timing chip).  

Thank you to all the racers, volunteers, sponsors, and the park authority for helping to make this event a huge success!  It was a fun and adventurous day out on the trails! 

Results are now posted.

Our next race on Saturday, June 4th is the fourth annual Fountainhead Off-Road Half Marathon and 10K in Fairfax Station, VA.  This fun and challenging course is a trail runners' dream and its location along the banks of the Occoquan Reservoir has some of the most beautiful and remote-feeling terrain in Fairfax County, VA, only 30 minutes outside of Washington D.C.  We hope to see you there!

Slick Stuff at the SBYB Finale!

Persistent rain and slick trails added to the fun factor yesterday as we wrapped up the 2016 Spring Backyard Burn Trail Running Series at Lake Fairfax Park in Reston, VA.  Close to 300 racers tested themselves on a challenging course that included forested single-track, lakeside trails, and open fields.  It was a great day out on the trails and thanks to all the racers, volunteers, sponsors, and the park authority for helping to make it all happen!          

Results are now posted.  Photos are coming soon.

Our next trail running race is the inaugural Reservoir Relay which will include 18 miles of trail running awesomeness in Western Fairfax County. The race traverses the Occoquan Reservoir and will be divided into three linear segments measuring 5-7 miles each. Race solo or leap frog the three segments on a 2 or 3 person relay team where the 'active' runner and the ‘on deck’ runner will swap car keys for epunch key (timing chip). For two person teams, one team member will complete any two segments of the race.  Don’t miss this epic day out on the trails!

Awesomeness at Rosaryville!

Good times were had at Rosaryville this past weekend as trail runners and mountain bikers gathered for the inaugural EX2 Rendezvous Run and Ride.  We started the day with a half marathon and 10K in the morning followed by a cross country mountain bike race in the afternoon.  Racers could choose to run, ride, or both.  It was an awesome day of running and riding in the woods!

Thank you to all the racers, volunteers, sponsors, and the park authority for helping to make it all happen! 

Results are now posted.  Photos are coming soon.
