In association with the DC Road Runners, LortonVFD is hosting their First Annual charity 12K. This is an out-and-back course almost completely around Burke Lake. The start/finish is at the northern end of the Burke Lake Park Ice Cream Parlor/Merry-Go-Round parking lot on main roadway. The race proceeds clockwise around lake over mildly rolling terrain. The first half mile is on the paved main roadway. After crossing the small bridge, bear right onto the dirt path, keeping the lake on your right. Continue on dirt path. Proceed for another three miles to turnaround and then proceed counterclockwise around lake back to the start/finish. The turnaround is past the earthen dam and is approximately 200 yards past the 4.0 mile marker. Race sentries are stationed and water is available at the turnaround. Each runner will receive a T-shirt and one-of-a-kind medal. All proceeds will go towards the Lorton Fire Station’s volunteer apparatus and equipment used by volunteers and career first responders alike to serve the community every day.
