Course and Runner Tracking


The USATF certified course starts and ends at Jiffy Lube Live, Prince William County’s premiere concert venue for national musical acts located in Bristow, VA. Runners will be treated to gently rolling hills in a beautiful countryside setting while progressing through the Manassas National Battlefield Park. All roads are paved. We encourage you to soak in multiple historical sites such as the New York Monuments, the Stonehouse, the Dogan House and the Brawner Farm House.  Click on the images below to view a larger image of the course and the course elevation.

Course Aid Stations: Each course aid station will have water, Gatorade, GU, portable bathrooms and medical aid. Aid stations are located at mile markers 2, 3, 4, 6, 8.75 and 11. CLIF Original & Whey Bars are available after the race.

Course Time Limit: The official course time limit is 3 hours and 30 minutes (16:00/mile pace). Runners must clear mile marker 5 by 8:20 am and Miler Marker 9 by 9:25 am. If at any time a participant drops behind those time limits, the participant will be picked up in the “bone collector” tail vehicle.
