Course Description (5.0 mile OR 10.0 mile option):
We added the Lake Fairfax course to the Fall BYB series in 2013 and it was in instant hit! This race is a crowd pleaser and has been so well received that we added it to the Spring series. Located in Reston, VA, this suburban park has a lake, huge fields, pavilions, and many newly designed trails. This fast and fun race course includes forested single-track, lakeside trails, and open fields.
