Middleburg 5K Theme is - Fox and Hounds
Foxhunting began in England in the 16th century to control the annoying foxes. Nowadays, foxhunting is a sport in which people in all countries participate in for fun. To add a touch of Middleburg to this event, all runners will enjoy a Stirrup Cup after the Huntmaster gives a toast, then the Middleburg Hunt will sound the horn to start our race.
