Verdun Adventure Bound: The Rite of Spring 5K

Sat May 28, 2022 Rixeyville, VA 22737 US Directions



Due to a lack of signups, we are cancelling the Rite of Spring 5K.

Here Are Your Options:

You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.

We understand. We hope you can join us next time.


17044 Adventure Bound Trail
Rixeyville, VA US 22737


Even More No Confusion:
Due to a low number of runners signing up early, we're cutting the price and changing this to an informal race: No prizes, no T-shirts, hand timing, and only $15 to race.  C'mon out and enjoy some low key racing and/or just get in some good speed work.  Runners who have already signed up will get a refund of $10 on race day, or a full refund if they prefer to cancel.

No Confusion Department:
We have changed the name of the race.  It was The Ann Marie Sheridan... and is now The Rite of Spring.

Cross Country 5K
Let's celebrate spring (and Stravinsky) with a 5K race on Verdun's beautiful cross country course!  

This race is a fundraiser with all proceeds going to support Verdun Adventure Bound.  Verdun is a educational 501 (C)(3) non-profit organization with a mission to support youth and adult personal growth incorporating experiential learning and stewardship of the land on its 66 acre retreat facility. Check them out at the link below.


$15 pre-registration through 11:59PM, May 27
$18 on Race Day


Race Course
Verdun has a beautiful cross country course with just enough hills to make it interesting.  There is a lot of variety in surface and terrain... in and out of the woods, along side two ponds, over a couple streams (don't worry... foot bridges).  See the map below for the expected course.
