Belmead Trail Fest
Saturday, September 27th, 2014
Come join us for a run through history at the inaugural 2014 Belmead Trail Festival located on Belmead Plantation in beautiful Powhatan, VA. The trail race offers three mileage options: 26.2m, 50k and 50m. The loop course will be primarily on well-maintained bridle trails that traverse forests, streams, fields and historic sites. The 10 mile course is fairly hilly, although there are some flat sections that will give runners a chance to recharge.
Belmead has over 2,000 acres, many of which are in a conservation easement. This spectacularly beautiful place is not open to the public, so runners will have the opportunity explore trails seldom seen.
All proceeds from the event will benefit FrancisEmma Inc., the non-profit organization that maintains Belmead. Read more about Belmead and its rich history here. www.francisemma.org.
