Yes DHRT 50K & 3H Trail Half Marathon

August 6, 2022
King George, Virginia
50K, 13.1M

The race is run entirely on the Dahlgren Railroad Heritage Trail which is a converted railroad bed and provides solid footing with little or no roots. This trail is flat, smooth, and fast with a variety of surfaces ranging from dirt, gravel, grass, and pine needles.

The course is an out and back that starts toward the eastern end of the trail and heads west for 15.5 miles before turning back. The volunteers from Friends of the Dahlgren Trail do an excellent job of ensuring that the trail is in peak shape for the race!

The trees along the trail ensure almost 100% shade during the run.
