Venue and Course:
Rockburn Cross is located within Rockburn Branch Park; a multi-use facility situated conveniently off I-95 in the Baltimore/Washington Corridor. The is a playground adjacent to the main course and the Lil Belgian's course. Weather permitting, the Rockburn Skills Park will be open and is a challenge for anyone but can also be an all-ages family activity. There will be a beer garden with offerings from Jailbreak Brewing, Belgian waffles, burgers and vegetarian fare from Upslide Down Dave.
AFC strives to provide the best CX course in the Mid-Atlantic and those who have raced here would agree it's always a challenge! There are super-fast woods sections, power sections, some(never enough!) downhill recovery, an off-camber roller coaster around the soccer fields, uphills and multiple areas with sand/gravel. It's a course that suits everyone at least part of the time!
