Blue Crab Bolt 10K Kicks Off at Beautiful Seneca Creek!

Excellent Experiences were had yesterday morning as we kicked off the eighth edition of the Blue Crab Bolt Trail Running Series at Seneca Creek State Park in Gaithersburg, MD.  Just over 300 racers were treated to beautiful sunny skies and impressive lake views as they negotiated fun and challenging 5K and 10K courses littered with rocks, roots, and demanding hill climbs.  Thanks to all the racers, volunteers, sponsors, and the park authority for making it all happen.  It was a great day of trail running action!

Results are now posted.  Photos are coming soon.

Our next Blue Crab Bolt race is on Saturday, July 29th at Schaeffer Farms Trail System in Germantown, MD.  The trails at Schaeffer are super fun and include twisty single-track, open field running, stream crossings, and several steep hills.  Register today to join in the fun!

Reservoir Relay was Epic!

Close to 150 adventurous trail runners were treated to unseasonably cool temperatures and beautiful scenery as they negotiated technical and hilly single-track (and a 4 mile section of storm ravaged trail) at the second annual Reservoir Relay Trail Running Race held yesterday 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 an epic day out on the trails! 

Results are now posted.  Photos are now posted.

Our next race on Sunday, June 11th is the fifth annual Fountainhead Half Marathon/10K Trail Running Race 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!
