Experience the best views in the Shenandoah Valley on this 13.1 mile point to point course connecting Augusta County’s Stuarts Draft Park to Waynesboro’s Ridgeview Park. Gently rolling hills, mountain vistas and beautiful serene river crossings make this Park to Park course a must do spring race. The race will be completely supported with fully stocked aid stations and a post race party at the finish line.
