Belmead Trail Fest
Saturday, September 26th, 2015
Come join us for a run through history at the 2nd Annual Belmead Trail Festival located at Belmead on the James in beautiful Powhatan, VA. The trail race offers four mileage options: 10m, 26.2m, 50km 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.
