The 5K and 10K courses leave the airstrip on Airlie Road and head onto Blackwell Road in the horse country of Fauquier County. Runners on the 10K course will continue through rolling farmland and loop back to Airlie Conference Center. Notable hills are located at 1.5 miles and 2.5 miles into the course – nothing awful, but you will feel them! Both courses offer a beautiful finish through the Airlie property in front of the waterfall and across the historic stone bridge, then past the Smokehouse and through the main gate.
The course is open to vehicles! The Fauquier County Sheriff’s Department will help with traffic, and we will have signs and flags posted, but the course is open to vehicles. Use caution and stick to the side of the road! You are responsible for your own safety… it’s just a friendly race, nothing worth taking silly chances over!Walkers are not permitted in the 10K. Walkers should choose the 5K and need to start in the back so that nobody gets tripped up at the start.This event will be chip timed. You will be given a small chip to tie into your shoelaces. Our computers will start timing you when you cross the starting mat, and stop your clock when you pass through the finish chute. You MUST return the chip in the buckets provided, or the clinic will have to pay for your chip! Please turn your chip in to the friendly race volunteers when you finish your run.Water will be available on the course. 5K runners will find water before mile 2. 10K runners will find water at mile 2.5 and again at mile 5. Hot weather can be dangerous… drink plenty of fluids!There are no cash prizes in this race. Trophies will go to the top male and female finishers in the 5K and the 10K races. Kids’ fun runners will get their t-shirts, but no trophies or medals. Medals for first and second place will be given in ten year age groups in the 5K and 10K races, ie, 19 and under, 20-29, 30-39, etc.
