Fast and Fun Lake Fairfax BYB this Sun, 5/1!

The final race of the 2016 Spring Backyard Burn Trail Running Series descends on Lake Fairfax in Reston, VA this Sunday, May 1st!  This course is fast and fun and includes forested and lakeside single-track, a few challenging hills, and open fields. 

Online registration is now closed but race day registration on-site will be available. 

If you can’t race then you can still enjoy the day and help make it all happen by volunteering at this event.  Volunteers help with check-in, aid stations, course marshaling, timing, food distribution, course sweeping and course demarking. Times vary from 7am-11:30am and shifts are usually 2-4 hours.  Volunteers receive free food, a cool race t-shirt, $15 off a future EX2 race or $5 off EX2 merchandise, and our sincere appreciation. Plus, volunteering at EX2 races is fun!

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.

More good times are right around the corner this coming Sunday, May 1st at the fourth and final race of the 2016 Spring Backyard Burn Trail Running Series which will be held at Lake Fairfax Park in Reston, VA.  Choose to race either 5 or 10 miles of demanding single-track hiking trails.  We hope to see you there.

Beautiful Pohick Bay Delights Trail Runners!

Over 300 trail runners were treated to gorgeous water views, excellent trail conditions, and perfectly cool temperatures at the second race of the 2016 SBYB series held yesterday at Pohick Bay Regional Park in Lorton, VA.  Situated on beautiful Gunston Cove and adjacent to Mason Neck National Wildlife Refuge, the moderately technical course featured tight single-track, wide open double-track, challenging climbs, and flowy descents.

The feedback from racers for this new venue was immediate and enthusiastic – ‘this race is a keeper’.  Thank you to all the racers, volunteers, sponsors, and the park management for helping to make this event a smashing success. 

Results are now posted.  Series Point Totals are now posted.  Photos are now posted.

The Spring Backyard Burn continues on Sunday, April 17th at Hemlock Overlook in Clifton, VA.  Considered by many to be the most challenging course of the series, Hemlock includes beautiful streamside single-track, open fields, and quad burning hill climbs.  Register today to join in the fun!
