Description

The Culpeper Sprint began in 2005 to a sold out crowd. Embraced by the town this race has continued to grow and evolve into one of the most popular races in the VTS. After a 750 meter swim in Mountain Run Lake athletes ride the rural country roads of Culpeper County on a great course that is technical at times but has some great straightaways to drop the hammer on. The run is all on road and goes down and up the famed Montelago hill for a challenging 5K course.

Be sure to come into town the day before to get your race packet and explore all that Culpeper has to offer.
