Courses

All the courses consist of a mixture of forested fire roads, twisty hiking trails, stream crossings, grassy fields, and minimal pavement. Fountainhead and Hemlock have a true wilderness feel yet are just 30 minutes from DC. Laurel Hill and Wakefield have some of the best trails around and their location just off major highways is very convenient. Lake Fairfax is a newer and very popular BYB race offering a super fun run in a suburban park.
