The Cross County Trail is a good one! Please register for the race if you would like to enjoy the wonderful trail with other runners and super volunteers at the fifth annual edition of the race to be held on Monday November 12th (Veterans Day Observed). For those of you interested in doing a double or triple that weekend there are several VA/MD/DE/DC running options for the double or triple race long weekend. Due to asphalt paving in recent years the flat course is about 75% paved at present. About 25% of the course is dirt/gravel with good footing.
The race web page is located at https://altisendurance.com/events/cross-county-trail-marathon-and-half-marathon
The race start/finish is at the Lake Accotink front entrance parking lot located seven tenths of a mile past the park entrance at 7578 Lake Accotink Road Springfield, VA 22150.
