Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine is proud to present the 21st Annual Blue Ridge Burn on Saturday October 8, 2016!

Located in Nelson County, Va., not far from BRO headquarters in downtown Charlottesville, the Blue Ridge Burn is a 5K/10K Trail Race that covers a mix of rugged, rolling terrain in the hills of one of Virginia’s most bucolic settings. The Burn partners with The Festy, a three-day music, camping, and outdoor sports festival which is now taking place at the Nelson County Preserve, about 20 miles from its previous home on the grounds of Devil’s Backbone Brewing Co. Come run and then stay for a whole weekend of festivities. This year The Festy lineup includes hosts and Festy founders, The Infamous Stringdusters, The Sam Bush Band, Abigail Washburn & Bella Fleck, The North Mississippi Allstars, and many more!
