Hemlock Overlook Regional Park
The course is a double out and back with a loop on the end of the second out and back. You start at Hemlock Overlook. After taking a three quarter mile loop around the parking lot to get spread out, you run down to the river and turn right, going upstream. You cross Popes Head Creek and run to the first aid station at Centreville Road. After this aid station, you keep going upstream to near the end of the trail in Bull Run Regional Park. You will cross the new, fancy bridge over Cub Run, go about 50 yards, turn right, and run through a sea of bluebells. After about a half mile, you will turn around at the point where the trail makes a 90 degree left turn away from Cub Run.
After the turnaround, you go back to Centreville Road for a second shot at the aid station and then straight downstream to Hemlock Overlook for an aid station located at the start/finish area. You go up the hill to Hemlock from the upstream, Popes Head Creek side. You don't go up the hill the way you came down at the start. You will cross Popes Head Creek just before you head up the hill.
After partaking of the aid station at Hemlock, you go down the hill as you did at the start, but when you get to the stream, you turn left and head downstream. You go through the soccer fields and then to the Bull Run Marina for an aid station. After the Marina, you arrive at the famous aid station at Wolf Run Shoals. After Wolf Run Shoals, it is only two miles to the aid station at Fountainhead Regional Park. After this aid station, you do the White Loop, coming out by a chain link fence where you turn left and head out on a blue blazed horse trail.
You take the blue blazed horse trail to the next aid station which is at the entrance to the infamous Do Loop. The Do Loop is like a lollipop on a stick. You go out the stick, go around the lollipop, and come back on the stick. You do the loop counterclockwise. Be sure to turn right at the intersection and when you get back to the intersection, go straight, don't do the loop a second time.
After you survive the Do Loop, you go straight back to Fountainhead without doing the White Loop. Then you go to Wolf Run Shoals, the Marina, and then the finish. You go up the hill to the finish from the Popes Head Creek side. You will go up the same way you did when you came back to Hemlock after the first turnaround. The result is that you always go down the hill on one trail and always up the trail on another one.
