10/19/14 Fall Series - Race #1 - Lake Fairfax - 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.

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.

11/2/14 Fall Series - Race #3 - Wakefield Park - Annandale, VA
 

Course Description (5.5 mile OR 10.0 mile option):

Location, Location, Location. This race takes place just a stones throw from the Capital Beltway. The course is fast with mostly flat even terrain and only a few stream crossings. Competitors will run over cinder trails, under power lines, and along single-track. Wakefield is the backyard playground for many Northern Virginia runners, walkers, and mountain bikers. Bring family and friends to cheer you on, as this course is also spectator friendly.

11/16/14 Fall Series - Race #4 - Hemlock Overlook - Clifton, VA
 

Course Description (5.5 mile OR 10.3 mile option):

Hemlock Overlook, located along the banks of the historic Bull Run, feels surprisingly remote for being so close to Washington D.C. Sightings of deer, beaver, turkey, osprey and great blue heron are not uncommon in this 425 acre park. This racecourse consists mostly of hiking trails (including the Bull Run Occoquan Trail), old dirt roads, and open fields. Competitors will run over rocks and roots, cross a few streams, and up some hills. The course is designed to be spectator friendly with several areas designated for family and friends to cheer on their racers.
