The race will be held at West Creek in Goochland, VA. West Creek is an established business park totaling over 3,500 acres of land: approximately 800 acres developed, 1,700 acres undeveloped, and 650 acres are preserved in a flood plain. West Creek has become an integral part of the Richmond landscape with several major institutions and amenities. The park has abundant wildlife habitats along Tuckahoe Creek, as well as two large lakes, with restrictive covenants to maintain and protect this natural integrity. West Creek is the perfect backdrop for this exciting event!
