About This Activity

Spring Series - Race #2 - Pohick Bay Regional 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 (5.35 miles OR 10.1 miles)

We are thrilled to introduce the EX2 community to Pohick Bay Regional Park. Situated on Gunston Cove and adjacent to Mason Neck National Wildlife Refuge and Gunston Hall, home of Founding Father George Mason, Pohick Bay is steeped in beauty and history. The trails are excellent, the water views are amazing, and bald eagle sightings are common.
The moderately technical course includes tight single-track, wide open double-track, challenging climbs, and flowy descents. Don’t miss this fantastic new addition to the BYB.
