This race is both in-person and virtual. Located just south of the Capital Beltway in Lorton, this beautiful race course includes a mixture of forested and open meadow singletrack meandering through 1600 acres of the former prison grounds. The race starts and ends under the old guard towers at the Workhouse Arts Center, which is the site of the former Lorton Reformatory. The course is one of our least technical and most of it is on singletrack that is a mix of dirt and crushed stone. The only short pavement sections are at the beginning and end of the race. There are no extended climbs, but lots of short ups and downs.
Race Date: Sunday March 28, 2021 + Virtual
Course Length: 5.6 miles (1 lap) OR 10.4 miles (2 laps)
Simply complete your race distance any time between March 26th and March 28th and then enter your time.

During registration, you will have an opportunity to support a local non-profit Homestretch. The goal of the charity partnership is to first and foremost to raise awareness of the services Homestretch provides to families in our area. In addition, we hope to raise funds that will directly support their efforts. Please consider making a donation when you register. Last year, EX2 events raised over $12,000 for Homestretch!
