We finally got approval for a modified course that uses the Rappahannock Heritage Trail for part of the race. See the course map at http://www.racetimingunlimited.org/raceinfo/bgmap13.pdf
The new course eliminates the wooden staircase to get to the canal path, crossing of William Street, the hill on Hanover Street and the dirt loop around the UMW ball fields and track.
Registration for the race is open at http://www.racetimingunlimited.org/R/BG/Info13.aspx and we have a 1200 runner limit. We sold out last year. So, register before we fill up.
