35th Annual Century - Save The Date: Sunday, August 27, 2017
Start & finish at Reston Town Center; 6:30 AM - 5:00 PM
The RBC Century for 2017 is being planned to use a route very similar to recent years, but the exact route will depend upon final coordination with Loundon County. The much enjoyed Century route last year consisted of one large loop from Hamilton to Hillsboro, Lovettsville, keeping the Taylorstown and Stumptown hills, before returning to Leesburg and Reston Town Center. The Metric route was merged with the century route at the new Old Mill rest stop before returning to Leesburg and Reston Town Center. The Half-Metric route uses quiet, wide streets in Ashburn. (see route map below)
