Spring Backyard Burn Trail Run - Fountainhead

April 25, 2021 + Virtual Fairfax Station, VA 22039 US Directions

When will check-in times be assigned?
We will assign check-in times as far in advance as possible, but no later than 5 days before the race.  We are assigning check-in times by pace so that folks running about the same pace will start together.  This will reduce the amount of passing that occurs on the course.  Check-in times are 15-minute windows (e.g., 7:30 to 7:45).

When will I start the race?
You should check-in ready to run.  This is because at check-in you get your bib and then directly enter the start queue.  Plan on starting your race within 5 or 10 minutes of checking in.

How will the virtual race work?
The virtual race can be run any time and any place between April 23rd and 25th, 2021.  This is the weekend of the in-person race.  Simply run your race and enter your time via RunSignUp.  You'll receive a race pre-race email (just like an in-person race!), a race t-shirt, and be included in the post-race virtual awards ceremony where we'll celebrate both the in-person and virtual race!

Where can I run my virtual race?
Any where you’d like, but we ask that you do NOT come race morning to run your virtual race.  But…you are welcome to come to the park and run the trails on Friday or Saturday of race weekend.  From the race website you can see the GPS route of the course.
