Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine is proud to present the 24th Annual Blue Ridge Burn on Saturday, October 5, 2019!

It’s that time of year again, time to celebrate the changing of the seasons by hitting the trails for the 24th annual Blue Ridge Burn 5K/10K. The race this year is heading back to where it all began- Walnut Creek Park  in North Garden, VA.

The run will start at the main parking lot near the Beach House and runners will get on the Orange Trail for almost a mile of rolling hills before crossing the disc golf course and hitting the Blue Trail Loop for some good old fashion up hill. Eventually they will head back to the parking lot. 10K runners will then complete the route a second time.

The Burn will be a 9:30 Saturday, October 5 and all proceeds will benefit the Southern Environmental Law Center. Registration is $22 ahead of time or $25 day of and includes a race T-shirt, race bag, post race snacks and prizes for the top runners. Plus, you get to spend the morning with the Blue Ridge Outdoors family.
