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 will start with the rolling hills of Reston and Potomac Falls. The exact route will depend upon final coordination with local communities. We will keep the much enjoyed large loop from Hamilton to Hillsboro, Lovettsville, keeping the Taylorstown and Stumptown hills, before returning to Leesburg and Reston Town Center. The Metric route is merged with the century route out to Purcellville before returning to Leesburg and Reston Town Center. The Half-Metric route also enjoys the rolling hills of Reston and Potomac Falls before looping around the wide streets in Ashburn.
