About This Activity

Feeling like your family could use some warm fuzzies this time of year? Come on out to our Family Adventure Race in one of the most family-friendly environments we could find—Willowsford, VA. You’ll bike, run, and navigate with up to 2 additional family members, and you’re sure to have a great adventure.

Extend your day of adventure into an entire weekend by coming early and taking part in the Willowsford Camp Out. Bring your tent and camping gear and join other racers and outdoor enthusiasts in a camp out at the Greens.  We will have fun games and entertainment to finish out the day and bring on the night.   Camping fees are included with your race registration.

We have teamed up with Willowsford–a 4000-acre naturally-planned community in Loudoun County–to bring you a fun and exciting event for the whole family.  The Frozen Foot challenge will take place in The Greens, the largest of Willowsford’s four villages, and a pristine destination for outdoor recreation and racing enthusiasts.
