WICKED BOTTOM 5K

Slightly Damp but still a Success!!!

The 8th Annual Wicked Bottom Cross Country 5K and 1/2 Mile Fun Run was a great success.  We were able to get everyone checked in, the 1/2-mile run, and get the 5K started before the light rain set in. 

New this year, the 5K was electronically timed by RaceWorksTiming.com  final results were posted to the Department's facebook page about 2hours after the event, and emailed out on Monday.  Here is a link to the results.  Click Here

Go ahead and mark your calendars for the 9th Annual Wicked Bottom Cross Country 5K and 1/2 Mile Fun Run.  It will be held on Saturday, May 5th, 2018

Come on out for the 8th Annual Wicked Bottom 5K and experience the fun everyone had last year!



The run starts from the lush grounds of Old House Vineyards. Passing the rows of vines and following the gravel road, runners will hop across Old Stevensburg Road and bound into one of Culpeper's little secrets - Lenn Park. The trail will wind along the border of the park property in view of Mountain Run Creek, then loop back ending at the vineyards. The course is fairly level with only a few short hills and with luck, you may catch a glimpse of wildlife.


Awards will be provided to the overall male/female finishers, and to 1st - 3rd place finishers in 11 different age groups of: 14 and under, 15-19,20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, and 60+.


Don't forget the kids! A 1/2-mile fun run through the vineyards will be held prior to the start of the 5K.  The 1/2 Mile fun run is open to kids and Adults.
