This race is both in-person and virtual. Located in Reston, VA, Lake Fairfax has a beautiful lake and an awesome trail network. Our courses hit the best singletrack and include some great views of the lake. There are a few short technical sections (more rocks and roots), but most of the course is fairly smooth singletrack. There is barely any pavement on this course. There are no extended climbs, but lots of short ups and downs.
Race Date: Sunday April 11, 2021 + Virtual
Course Length: 5.2 miles OR 10.4 miles
Simply complete your race distance any time between April 9th and 11th and then enter your time. We'll mail you your race t-shirt and invite you to the post-race awards ceremony where we celebrate both the in-person and virtual events! See FAQs for more information on how the virtual race will work.
During registration, you will have an opportunity to support a local non-profit Homestretch. The goal of the charity partnership is to first and foremost to raise awareness of the services Homestretch provides to families in our area. In addition, we hope to raise funds that will directly support their efforts. Please consider making a donation when you register. Last year, EX2 events raised over $12,000 for Homestretch!
