4.  Use Silver Brook Shuttle for Parking for the Regatta
  • WTW Crew has prepaid for our team, athletes and families, to use this shuttle service from Silver Brook Elementary.  8 schools have formed a co-op to provide an alternative to the fees and limited parking at Sandy Run.  This is not provided by VASRA.  The shuttle is an FCPS yellow Bus.
  • Parking is free at Silver Brook and there is no per-ride fee to use this shuttle.
  • The shuttle departs Silver Brook Elementary School, 9350 Crosspointe Drive, Fairfax Station, Virginia, 22039, Click here for Mapquest to Silver Brook
    • Shuttle starts at 6:50am
    • There are two buses, making the loop at at 15-20 minute intervals, on the four quarters of the hour.  Between 11:30 and 1:30 the buses will run on a 30 minute interval instead of a 15 minute interval.
    • Depending on traffic volume it takes 15 - 30 minutes to make the trip between Silver Brook and Sandy Run.
    • The last bus will leave Sandy Run an hour after the last race is run.
  • The Sandy Run pick up/drop off is in the top lot where the Grandstand trail head is located
    • The shuttle is a FCPS yellow bus.  It is different than the shuttles between parking lots provided by VASRA. 
    • Last time the line formed closer to the woods, not at the entrance to the parking lot, there was a small sign - Silver Brook Shuttle.  This is our first year participating but it has been running for 5 years, ask someone waiting in line if you have a question, most veteran shuttle users are very helpful.
