About the Race
On Saturday, Oct. 21, 2017, we will hold the first competitive trail race at Brushy Hills, a 600 acre watershed tract on the outskirts of Lexington, Virginia in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley. Brushy Hills is home to miles of trails, lovingly developed and maintained by the Friends of Brushy Hills, a group of volunteers affiliated with the Rockbridge Area Conservation Council (RACC).
Local time: 8:27 AM
The race will serve as a fund raiser for the Friends of Brushy Hills and an area food pantry, the Rockbridge Area Relief Association (RARA). The groups will share equally in the race proceeds. In addition, participants are encouraged to bring canned goods and other non-perishable food items to donate on race day.
We will offer two race distances, a challenging nine mile course with over 2000 feet of vertical gain and a 3-4 mile course with about 500 feet of climbing. 100 percent of both courses will be on the awesome single-track of Brushy Hills.
