A World Class Sporting Event

 

Experience an annual fall tradition in the lovely Middleburg hunt country at The Virginia Fall Races, where your only interruption to a relaxing day will be the cheer of 10,000 excited fans and the storming of thundering hooves! Take part in The National Steeplechase Association's (NSA) 121st year and 62nd running of the the Virginia Fall Race Meeting.

Come sense the history while watching steeplechase action at the oldest continuous race course in the state of Virginia. Glenwood Park and the rolling race course on its grounds, sits amongst the lush hunt country one mile off of Route 50 in Middleburg. The 112 acre park was established in 1911 and is maintained today by a private trust left to the people of Virginia by the late Mr. Daniel C. Sands, a local fox hunter and avid sportsman.

Every autumn as leaves begin to color, the Virginia Fall Race meeting holds it annual race meet on the second weekend in October. This year's running promises to be one of the leading meets on the 2016 Fall Steeplechase Circuit. It will be our 62nd running of this hunt country tradition.

The Virginia Fall Races benefit Inova Loudoun Hospital Foundation in nearby Leesburg and is a highly regarded community event. Since its inception in 1955, this race meeting has consistently contributed more money to the to the Foundation than any other sporting event.
