Race #3 @ Riverbend

November 11, 2018

Online registration is closed. Race day registration will be available, but please arrive early to allow enough time to park and register.

Riverbend Course Description

Riverbend lies adjacent to the Potomac River and just west of Great Falls National Park. The course is beautiful and includes incredible riverside singletrack, a few short hills, and amazing views.  This is not a super technical course. We are excited to introduce more trail runners to this special park and hope you will decide to come join the fun.
