2017 DCRRC Burke Lake 12K

 Registration is closed for this event
Burke Lake 12K

Distance and course: 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 ("Start" is painted on road surface). 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 (watch for tree roots and protruding rocks!). 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 (if you reach the public marina, you've gone too far!). Race sentries are stationed and water is available at the turnaround.

The Burke Lake 12K is Snowball Series Race #7.  It is held on the first Sunday of March. The temperature can vary from below freezing to the mid-sixties, so dress appropriately.  There may be snow and ice on the road and trail, so run carefully.  The course is not USATF-certified, but it has been accurately measured.
