"Racing teaches us to challenge ourselves. It teaches us to push beyond where we thought we could go. It helps us to find out what we are made of. This is what we do. This is what it's all about."

Pacemakers 10K - Airlie, Warrington VA

Last Sunday, for the second year in a row, we ran the Pacemakers 10k, a small race in the surroundings of Warrington (Virginia), one hour west of DC. 

The course leaves the airstrip on Airlie Road and heads onto Blackwell Road in the horse country of Fauquier County. Runners continue through rolling farmland and loop back to Airlie Conference Center. Notable but gentle hills are located at 1.5 miles and 2.5 miles into the course and finally a beautiful finish through the Airlie property in front of the waterfall and across the historic stone bridge, then past the Smokehouse and through the main gate.

The scenic course is the strong point of this small race, I love to run in the countryside. Well organized event, nice logistics, and beautiful location; the only downside is the post race refreshments for the 10K ... plenty of water and Gatorade to drink but only bananas left to eat ...

Trophies were awarded to the top male and female finishers and medals for first and second place in ten year age groups.

Here the link to the final results.
