Trail Deets: Chulapos y Chulapas, it’s time to dance the Chotis in the streets of Madrid! Can’t get there this year? We have our own San Isidro Festival in Alexandria. Have no idea what the hare is rambling about, google “San Isidro patron saint of Madrid”, Chotis, Chulopos/as. Kudos to those that dress appropriately.
Trail will be ready by 1pm on Saturday. If you’re on trail Saturday afternoon, expect some rosquillas y limonada. Low on the shiggy meter but PI protection recommended. Runners trail 4-5 miles, Walkers 2-3 miles.
- DCH4 is still iso-hashing so show up when you please but be mindful of crowds. Virginia is not requiring mask outdoors at this point but it’s advised if in a crowded area (which will be a low chance on this trail). Bring a mask on trail just in case
Driving: From I495, take Van Dorn Street Exit. Go south on Van Dorn Street. Take a right on Franconia Road. Left on Beulah Street. Look for “Alexandria Braces” just past the Franconia Fire Station. Turn into that parking lot.
