Men's and Women's Cross Country

Panorama Farms is a privately owned farm of 850 acres located off Earlysville Road, approximately six miles from the Grounds of the University of Virginia. The property has nine miles of cut grass trails and 30 miles of wooded mountain bike trails. There are two different 5K courses, as well as a 6K, an 8K and a 10K course each with a common starting line and finish line. The courses are laid out entirely on rolling grass fields that are maintained year-round. The courses are exceptionally spectator friendly.

The home of the Virginia cross country teams, Panorama Farms was the site of the 2006 and 2007 ACC Cross Country Championships.

Panorama Farms is private property. At times when Virginia is not hosting a meet, the course is not open to the public. To use the course, permission from Panorama Farms ownership must be obtained.
