The Bull Run Run is a 50 mile trail run that parallels the Bull Run and the Occoquan River in northern Virginia, just outside of Washington, DC. The course traverses forested, rolling terrain during the height of Virginia’s spring beauty. ┬áThe run’s unique character includes a Civil War theme that honors the battles that occurred here over 150 years ago. The 13 hour time limit makes Bull Run Run an excellent first 50 miler. Established in 1993, Bull Run Run is one of the oldest 50 milers in the country, and is put on by volunteers from the Virginia Happy Trails Running Club.

Did I miss something?

This is an updated web site for the 2019 event. All of the information a prospective runner (and their crew) needs is here. The historic BRR site has information from years’ past, including past reports.

A contemporaneous map of the first battle, July 1861. This part of the map shows the entire course of the Bull Run Run as well as the scene of the battle itself. We have marked some important points on our course in red. The map was published in Washington in 1861 and comes from the Library of Congress.
