EX2 Adventures Fall Backyard Burn 5M/10M Trail Running Series-Race #4
The 11th 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 #4 - Fountainhead - Fairfax Station, VA Course Description (5.0 mile OR 10.0 mile option): Fountainhead Regional Park is situated along the banks of the Occoquan Reservoir in Western Fairfax County. This challenging race course is beautiful and consists mostly of hiking trails (including the Bull Run Occoquan Trail), horse trails, and old dirt roads. Competitors will run over rocks and roots, through several streams, and up some hills. This course was a new addition in 2006 and became an immediate hit.
