About This Activity

After a long winter, you’ll be ready to thaw out at Rev3 Adventure’s Spring Thaw trail series. Catering to the trail runner, mountain biker, or anyone who enjoys both, the series is three weekends of trail runs and mountain bike events on three different trail networks to challenge all abilities (Fountainhead Regional Park, Willowsford’s the Grant and Willowsford’s the Greens located in Loudoun County). Race once or a few times, or tackle all six. Excellent and copious amounts of prizes go to trail runner series champs and mountain bike series champs. If you have the skills to race both on foot and wheels, we just might crown you the Trail Master.

We will capture race times with our bib chip timing system as you enjoy the dedicated private single-track trails at Willowsford and the classic technical trails at Fountainhead. At Willowsford we will have post-race food and refreshments, including beer from local breweries. At Fountainhead you can expect a hot dog and chili feast. Bring on spring already.

Event details and schedule

Saturday, March 14th  The Grant at Willowsford

Come pound out some trails and keep that New Year’s resolution alive. Our 3rd annual Spring Thaw Trail Series will get you up, out, and saying good bye to the winter blues. Willowsford, a new community in Ashburn, Virginia, where the vision is “Inspired Living,” has a purpose-built trail system with a variety of terrain features, offering runners and riders a fun and moderately challenging course. You will take single track through Willowsford’s Conservancy areas, passing through open fields, pine forests, and thick oak groves. Come and experience the best of Virginia’s countryside on two wheels or two feet. Trail Map.
