2021 Historic Waterford 5K/10K Trail Walk/Run

The Historic Waterford Trail Run/Walk is a perfect outdoor adventure located in beautiful Western Loudoun County, just under an hour from DC. Bring your family and friends to experience a 5K, 10K and Fun Run through scenic trails, paved and gravel roads, vineyards, and the historic streets of Waterford, Virginia.  Spend some time enjoying the beauty of an early 19th Century American village with sweeping vistas of rural landscapes and farms, historic buildings and the rolling Blue Ridge Mountains. The trails are rustic so you may encounter a little mud, but that is half the fun!  Celebrate 50 years of preserving this National Historic Landmark with us!  Proceeds from the race benefit the Waterford Foundation.
