Broad Run is a tributary of the Potomac River in Loudoun County, Virginia. The creek, located between Goose Creek and Sugarland Run, principally drains portions of eastern Loudoun County, as well as a small portion of western Fairfax County.[1]

The headwaters of the creek are located about Script error: No such module "convert". northeast of Aldie. The creek flows eastward near Arcola and continues generally northeast to its mouth at the Potomac near the southern end of Seldon's Island to the north of Sterling and about Script error: No such module "convert". southeast of Leesburg.[2] The watershed of the creek is 67.5 mi2 (175 km2) in Loudoun and 23.8 mi2 (62 km2) in Fairfax.[3]

The Broad Run High School and Broad Run Magisterial District of Loudoun derive their names from the creek.

The creek should not be confused with the nearby Broad Run (a tributary of the Occoquan River) that flows through Fauquier and Prince William Counties.[2]
