The 14th annual Spring Backyard Burn is a series of 5 and 10 mile trail running races held on some of the best trail networks in the Northern Virginia Area. All the courses include a mixture of forested fire roads, twisty hiking trails, stream crossings, grassy fields, and minimal pavement.

The Spring and Fall Series are both independent of each other. Race in one, two, three, or all four races of the SBYB. After each race, awards are presented to the top five finishers in each age group. In addition, a point system adding competitors' four-race point totals will be used to determine the top five series finishers in each age group. Series prizes and awards are presented at the final race of the SBYB series.

Who's RacingThese races have SOLD OUT for the past several years, often weeks or months before race day. So, REGISTER EARLY to save money and guarantee your spot in the race.
