Learn More About the Greensprings 8K Run – Starting and finishing at Jamestown High School, the 8K run/walk is a very scenic, very fast, and almost totally flat course combining the Greensprings Trail, the Powhatan Creek Trail and the Capital Trail, three of the finest recreational trails in Williamsburg. Starting at the far end of the JHS parking lot, at the intersection with the concrete sidewalk that connects to the JHS track, the course goes right briefly on Eagle Way, a right thru the Greensprings Trailhead parking lot sidewalk, to a left at the Greensprings Trail entrance. One mile into the race, take a right onto the Powhatan Creek trail for a third of a mile. Then right on the Capital Trail for just over a mile to a right on the bike path paralleling Route 5 that connects to Eagle Way and JHS. From that bikepath take a right to get back onto the Greensprings Trail, taking a right over the scenic Swamp Bridge to the intersection with the Capital Trail for a brief distance, again returning to the Greensprings Trail for the final 1 3/4 miles of the race, retracing the course to a left on Eagle Way, a left into the JHS parking lot, and a left onto the concrete sidewalk, finishing on the JHS track. Most of the 4.97-mile race will be on the easy-to-run crushed gravel of the wide Greensprings Trail (2 ¾ miles), while the remainder will be on asphalt paths or roads (2 ¼ miles).
