The Browntown Loop is always run on Independence Day and is this year’s first run in the Trifecta. The loop starts and finishes alongside the Jordan River, just west of Flint Hill, VA. Bring cash for the OJ Rudacille general store in Browntown. This is the only aid on the run.

Other details on the loop, including maps and turn sheets, are on Furbutt’s Favorites.
