BRR Training Run #3 (The South)

The first portion of the two out-n-back sections will be on the BROT to the Bull Run Marina, and then returning on the same trail back to the cars. This round trip should total about 14 miles. After refueling, the plan is then to go out on the “horse trail” to link up with the infamous Do Loop, then return on the same horse trail to the cars. This section is about 8 miles, as the first section will be using the White trail that is part of the outbound section of the BRR 50 miler course.

This is the third of the VHTRC’s series of three winter training runs on the Bull Run Run 50 Miler course ahead of the April 2022 race. Come out and get some easy rolling miles on the BROT! Starting at the BROT trailhead, next to the main parking lot at Fountainhead Regional Park, with the run getting underway at 8 am. The first portion of the two out-n-back sections will be on the BROT to the Bull Run Marina, and then returning on the same trail back to the cars. This round trip should total about 14 miles. After refueling, the plan is then to go out on the “horse trail” to link up with the infamous Do Loop, then return on the same horse trail to the cars. This section is about 8 miles, as the first section will be using the White trail that is part of the outbound section of the BRR 50 miler course.

Looking to arrive later? Cool — come out to the Bull Run Marina at 9 to pick up the group to Fountainhead; you can then either continue on to do the Do Loop prior to your return, or not (22 or 14 miles — your choice). Or come out around 10, and either wait for the group so that you can start with the Do Loop, or head out on the BROT and then turn back with the group to get in some warm up miles before exploring the Do Loop.

More details can be found on Furbutt’s Favorites.

Club Event Participant Medical Policy

This is an event with very real risks to your well being. The VHTRC does not provide medical care for runners at this event. Runners are responsible for their own health, safety, and well being at this event. No doctors, nurses, or emergency medical technicians, or anyone with any medical training are available along the course, at any aid station, or at the finish. The club does not supply any medical goods or services, including bandages, splints, antiseptic, or Ibuprofen or any other drugs to maintain the health of runners. Physical, medical, and emergency care is the runners' responsibility. In case of an emergency, we will endeavor to get local emergency personnel to an injured runner as soon as possible. Since most of our events are in remote areas, medical care may be far away in distance or time. Each year, runners finish — or are forced to drop out — with scrapes, deep cuts, hematomas, dislocations, and sprains. Runners have experienced cuts, bruises, bee stings, and asthma attacks. This is an event with very real risks.
