Stafford, Virginia is 10 miles north of Fredericksburg, 40 miles south of Washington, D.C., and 60 miles north of Richmond. Stafford was home to George Washington starting when he was 6 years old. He lived on his family’s farm but you might recognize Stafford more as the location where George Washington chopped down the infamous cherry tree.

The Sprint race will consist of a 400 meter swim, 10 mile bike, and a 3.1 mile run. For more course details, information, and tickets, click here.
