The 10th annual Fall 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, several stream crossings, grassy fields, and minimal pavement.
Race #6 - 11/29/15 - Hemlock Overlook, Clifton, VA
(5.5 mile OR 10.3 mile option):
Hemlock Overlook, located along the banks of the historic Bull Run, feels surprisingly remote for being so close to Washington D.C. Sightings of deer, beaver, turkey, osprey and great blue heron are not uncommon in this 425 acre park. This racecourse consists mostly of hiking trails (including the Bull Run Occoquan Trail), old dirt roads, and open fields. Competitors will run over rocks and roots, cross a few streams, and up some hills. The course is designed to be spectator friendly with several areas designated for family and friends to cheer on their racers.
The Spring and Fall Series are both independent of each other. A point system adding competitor's six-race point totals will be used to determine the top finishers within each age group of the series.
These races have SOLD OUT for the past several years, usually weeks or months before race day. So, REGISTER EARLY to save money and guarantee your spot in the race.
