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 sixth annual edition of the race to be held on Saturday September 28th. Run the VA/DC double by also running the C&O Canal Towpath Marathon and Half Marathon on Sunday September 29th, or run all five races in the Altis Mid-Atlantic Marathon and Half Marathon Series by running Saturday to Wednesday October 2nd running in VA, DC, WV, MD, and PA. 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.
