Spring Series - Race #1 - Laurel Hill Park - Lorton, VA
The 13th annual Spring 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.

Course Description (5.7 miles OR 10.0 miles)

In the grassy ‘Quad’ of the Workhouse Arts Center, adjacent to repurposed jail cells and abandoned guard towers of the former Lorton Prison complex, racers will toe the line for the Laurel Hill BYB. Located off I-95, just south of the Capital Beltway, this beautiful, fast, and fun race course includes a mixture of forested and open meadow single-track meandering through 1600 acres of the former prison grounds. Race at the Laurel Hill BYB and take a run through time and history.
