From I-495, take exit 43-44 and follow signs for Georgetown Pike, Route 193, West. Follow Georgetown Pike west approximately 0.6 miles west from the Beltway to the main parking area on the right hand side at the bottom of the hill (at the intersection with Swinks Mill Road). Note that the park is listed on some maps as "Dranesville District Park."
Please carpool and come early! Use one of 3 parking options:
1. Park at Scott's Run Nature Preserve west (main) parking by following the directions above. We will reserve some spaces here for general public use since the park is open to the public during the race.
2. Also at Scott's Run Nature Preserve, additional very limited parking is available only 0.3 miles outside the Beltway (before descending the hill, on the right hand side). From here, follow orange flags inside the park to walk west to registration.
3. New for this year: Additional parking with kind assistance from McLean Presbyterian Church - 1020 Balls Hill Road, McLean, VA
From I-495, follow signs for Georgetown Pike, Route 193 East. At the first traffic light on Route 193 East, turn south onto Balls Hill Road. Use the first right-turn lane to enter the property. Immediately turn right into the side parking lot. Park as far into this lot as you can. Please park only in this side parking lot. Map of Offsite Parking
A 15-passenger shuttle will be available between 7:30am and 8:40am to take you to registration. Take advantage of it and help ensure on time start by arriving early. We appreciate your help in preventing late rush.
In the event that this parking lot becomes full, or it becomes impossible to transport runners to registration on time, we will regrettably have to turn runners away and do apologize for the inconvenience. Notify firstname.lastname@example.org with comments and suggestions so that we can do better next time.
Starting at 9:30am, the shuttle will be available to take you back to McLean Presbyterian Church.
This cross country features dirt trails, forest, and obstacles (small creek, mostly-dry creek bed, and fallen trees) to jump over and duck under. It's so much fun that you'll get to do it twice in this two-loop, 8km course.
The race is part of our low-key club race series and is free for MCRRC members, $10 for non-members 18 and over, and $5 for non-members under 18. Registration is race-day only starting an hour before the race. Low Key Club Race Entry Form
