W&OD Trail event on Labor Day

Trail Mix is a series of events on September 3, the Saturday of Labor Day weekend, celebrating the W&OD Trail. The Greater Washington Sports Alliance,  Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority and Dominion Virginia Power are sponsoring the event.

The events include Hail the Trail, a Trail Cleanup and Beautification project, The Great Skedaddle, a Bike, Run, Walk Event, and Trailfest, a Community Festival.

The bike portion of the event has two options, 5 and 10 miles. We're a little concerned that participants are urged to "Use it as a training day for an upcoming race." When we talked to organizers a while back we warned them that the Trail is very crowded on weekends and training on the trail is not a good idea. Tour organizers are looking for volunteers so if you want to help, contact ebraner@gwsportsalliance.com. "Course will start and finish at Farmwell Station Middle School, host venue of Trailfest."
