About This Activity

The Backyard Burn Series consists of 5-mile and 10-mile trail running races held in different Northern Virginia parks. A point system adding competitor's six-race point totals will be used to determine the top finishers within each age group.

Dates &

All the courses consist of a mixture of forested fire roads, twisty hiking trails, stream crossings, grassy fields, and minimal pavement. Prince William FP, Fountainhead, and Hemlock have a true wilderness feel yet are just 30 minutes from DC. Wakefield and Laurel Hill have some of the best trails around and are conveniently located right off major highways. Lake Fairfax is a new addition to the FBYB series and offers a fun run in the suburban park.
