Spring Thaw Dash #1
Whether you reminisce about the glory days of high school and college cross-country races or you are still a competitor, REV3 trail dashes only add to the good times. Located at Willowsford, a new community in Ashburn Virginia where the vision is “Inspired Living, establishing grounded connections for the community so its residents can enrich their quality and variety of life”. With a purpose built trail system Willowsford has a variety of terrain features, offering runners a fun and challenging course. A choice of two distance challenges—5K course (3.1 miles) and a 10K course (6.2 miles)—are available. After the race, a kid’s 1-mile fun run will ensure that the little ones are as tired out as you are. In addition, awards for top age group finishers and plenty of door prizes will be given.
This race is the first trail run in the REV3 Adventure trail series.
REV3 Adventure Trail Series
For 2013 REV3 Adventure is excited to bring you a new trail series geared toward the trail runner, mountain biker, or anyone who enjoys both. With two different locations and four different trails, you can come and race one event or tackle all eight to earn the title Trail Master. The series consists of four trail run events and four mountain bike events. We will crown a trail runner series champ, a mountain bike series champ, and–if you have the skills to race both on foot and wheels–the series champ of Trail Master.
With dedicated private single track trails at the Greens and at the Grant located at the Willowsford community in Loudoun County, the terrain is prime for fast times caught by a ChampionChip timing system. Post-race refreshments will be provided by Lost Rhino Brewery and Pizzeria MOTO. To round out the series, this fall we’ll have an Adventure Weekend, starting with a Sprint Adventure Race and Family Adventure Race on Saturday followed by the Trail Series Finale on Sunday. On Saturday night between the race days, enjoy free camping, bonfire, evening entertainment, geocaching, orienteering course, musical entertainment, movie, and exceptional hospitality and entertainment by Willowsford. Sound awesome enough for you?
