Feels Like the Spring Thaw!
Dear Trail Masters,
It’s almost time to kick off the 2016 race season with the Spring Thaw. We’re so happy you’re joining us on the trails!
Due to popular request and the clocks changing on us mid-series, we have decided to move all the trail run start times up just half an hour to8:00 am. The mountain bike races will start at the same scheduled time—10:00 am. Also, please note that, if necessary, we have reserved a rain date of April 23.
Pre-Run/Ride Wednesday, March 9, 4:30-6:30 pm
Join us for a pre-ride or pre-run of the course in The Greens (41025 Willowsford Lane, Aldie, VA 20105) on Wednesday, March 9. Please arrive by 4:15 pm to start riding/running at 4:30 pm. This location is on private property and can only be accessed during organized events unless you are a resident. You must check in with us at the trail head before riding and running the trail (see Map). The trails will be lightly marked. See below for driving directions, and keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates.
This trail is moderately technical. One loop (Newbie division) is approximately 6 miles. The route can be found here.
Next Tuesday, we’ll send out all the race-day info you’ll need, but if you have any questions before that, check Facebook and our website or feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please spread the word that we offer online registration and race-day registration for the March 12 races at the Greens, the March 19 events at Conway Robinson State Forest, and the April 9 races at The Grant. We can take cash, check, and credit cards on site.
Parking and Directions (Pre-Ride/Run and Race Day)
The start and finish area is located at the end of Grassland Grove Drive. GPS address is 41025 Willowsford Ln, Aldie, VA, then follow Grassland Grove Drive all the way to the end and park alongside the road. Location is on Google maps here.
Changing Event Dates and Categories
If you would like to switch to a different date, category, or distance or transfer your entry to someone else, you can log into your Active.com account, where we have enabled the option to do this. There will be no refunds to switch to a shorter-distance event. There is a transfer fee to change events. Transfers can be made up until race day.
If you are bringing friends and family and they would like to help in any way, we would love to put them to work. We are looking for people to help marshal the course and run aid stations. Volunteers are very much appreciated by all—organizers and racers alike. To show our gratitude, Rev3 Adventure will give all volunteers an event T-shirt and a discount toward any of our other races in 2016. Volunteers can sign up here. Staff and racers will be super grateful!
We have some fabulous sponsors—local and nationwide—and we can’t wait to share the swag, prizes, and benefits they are offering our participants.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
The Rev3 Adventure team
