10/16/16 Fall Series - Race #1 - Lake Fairfax Park - Reston, VA

Course Description (5.0 mile OR 10.0 mile option):

We added the Lake Fairfax course to the Fall BYB series in 2013 and it was in instant hit! Located in Reston, VA, this suburban park has a lake, huge fields, pavilions, and many newly designed trails. This fast and fun race course includes forested single-track, lakeside trails, and open fields. This newer race is a crowd pleaser and a great addition to the Fall BYB series.

10/23/16 Fall Series - Race #2 - Riverbend - Great Falls, VA

Course Description (5.05 mile OR 10.1 mile option):

Racers loved Riverbend in its inaugural running in 2015 so we are bringing it back for round two. The park lies adjacent to the Potomac River and just west of Great Falls National Park. The course is sweet and includes incredible riverside single-track, challenging hills, and amazing views. We are thrilled to introduce more trail runners to this special park and hope you will decide to come join the fun.

11/20/16 Fall Series - Race #3 - Laurel Hill - Lorton, VA

Course Description (5.7 miles OR 10.0 miles)

In the grassy ‘Quad’ of the Workhouse Arts Center, adjacent to repurposed jail cells and abandoned guard towers of the former Lorton Prison complex, racers will toe the line for the Laurel Hill BYB. Located off I-95, just south of the Capital Beltway, this beautiful, fast, and fun race course includes a mixture of forested and open meadow single-track meandering through 1600 acres of the former prison grounds. Race at the Laurel Hill BYB and take a run through time and history.

Course Description (5.0 mile OR 10.0 mile option):

Fountainhead Regional Park is situated along the banks of the Occoquan Reservoir in Western Fairfax County. This challenging race course is beautiful and consists mostly of hiking trails (including the Bull Run Occoquan Trail), horse trails, and old dirt roads. Competitors will run over rocks and roots, through several streams, and up some hills. This course was a new addition in 2006 and became an immediate hit.
