Mason District Running Festival

Sat September 28, 2019 Annandale, VA US 22003 Directions
Event: 6 Hour Run
This event is for a bit more experienced runners and those, who would like to go a little further but are not sure how far they can go. Timed events are perfect for that since a runner is not "chasing" a distance but rather going against time. Runners can finish their run anytime during those 6 hours, even though we'd like to see them go all the way till the end.
Runners will run the 5K course and will notify a loop recorder each time they return to the start/finish line. The race is over when last lap is completed anytime before 2 pm.
There will be a designated area at start/finish line for picnic chairs, drop bags, coolers and other needed gear to leave.
Runners can keep going or take breaks between loops; that's up to each one of them.
This is NOT a typical 5K course that you may encounter at most urban races in our area. Almost the entire course (99%) is on gravel roads and single trails. It offers challenging 200+ feet of elevation gain, lots of roots, rocks, leaves, fallen trees, and stream crossings etc. There is also a lot of wild life: from deer and foxes, encounter with which may not be so probable during the Festival hours, to snakes and ticks, which won't necessarily hide, depending on the weather and temperature.
Course will be marked with marking paint and, where necessary with additional signs and streamers.

Event: 3 Hour Run
This event is a "half" version of the 6-hour run and it is for those, who are still a bit intimidated with an idea of running 6 hours straight and don't want to "quit" in the middle of the race. Signing up for this option may be a little less scary.
This race is also geared towards a bit more experienced runners and those, who would like to go a little further but are not sure how far they can go. Timed events are perfect for that since a runner is not "chasing" a distance but rather going against time. Runners can finish their run anytime during those 3 hours, even though we'd like to see them go all the way till the end.
Runners will run the 5K course and will notify a loop recorder each time they return to the start/finish line. The race is over when last lap is completed anytime before 11 am.

Event: Kids Fun Run (1 mile)
This run, which is approximately a mile long (1 mile), is for the youngest. If they can walk they are eligible. They may be accompanied by an adult but that's not mandatory. There will be people at crucial turn points to direct the runners. The course, which is basically a loop, is mainly a gravel road but has some roots and loose rocks. There is also some downhill and consequently uphill (1/3 of the course) and the rest is pretty much flat (2/3 of the course). It may be a nice challenge for the young ones.
We hope to see many children to take a part at this kids fun run with their parents, grandparents, siblings, friends or alone. Each finisher will receive a prize.
Start Time: 10:00am EDT
End Time: 10:30am EDT
Registration Limit: 28 spots left.
Event: 1/2 Marathon
Runners will run four (4) loops on the 5K course and will notify a loop recorder each time they will cross start/finish line. After the fourth completed 5K loop they will head out on the the Kids Fun Run course of 0.9 miles, which will bring total to just a little over 13.1 miles.
There will be aid station at the start/finish area, which the runners will be able to utilize aid station (water, energy drink, PB&Js, fruits etc.)
The course will be opened for 3 hours, i.e. till 2 pm. Runners must complete all four 5K loops by 1:45 pm in order to continue with the last portion (0.9 mile) of the run.
