Miamisburg Turkey Trot

November 24 @ 8:30 am


The course runs straight from the start for 1/4 mile before crossing over rail road tracks. Please be careful! We’ve been promised a closed track *but* if you hear whistles and clanging bells: STOP!

  • At 1/3 of a mile, the course turns 90 degrees right. Last year worked because people were courteous and careful so thank you! Please do just as you did last year. 🙂

  • At 1/2 mile the course turns left, this is where your hill begins. Yes, it gets bigger from here, although when asked last year most runners replied, “What Hill?”

  • This is where the fun starts, turn right onto Vanguard and continue up what passes for a hill in Miamisburg. The summit is the 1 mile mark!

  • You may now start your long, lazy descent for entire next mile.

  • At 2 miles, turn left onto Dixie Highway. PLEASE stay on the LEFT side of the road. This is the only section with two-way traffic and it’s only 300 feet, but it’s very crowded.

  • Go past the sewage treatment plant, because it would not be the Turkey Trot without a pass by the sewage treatment plant, and then continue to the far entrance (2nd) into Rice Field.

  • You are HALF WAY when you turn right into Rice Field. This is the only WATER STOP – but, there are Porta-Johns here too!

  • Continue into a lazy turn behind the ball fields. Here the course narrows and we have a TIMING MAT. Make sure you PASS OVER the mat, because if you do not, you will not have officially run the race.

  • Turn left back onto Dixie at the northern entrance next to the sewage treatment plant. PLEASE stay to your LEFT; this is the two-way section heading back.

  • You now have a straight shot all the way back to downtown. Make sure you stay right at the split in the road.

    • Back at the start-line, you will turn left and go a block further. Now make a quick right onto Water Street where you will see the finish banner!

    • You will have 1-milers on your left, so please stay right!

    • The FINISH is on Water Street – so make sure you throw up your hands and whoop as you cross the mat.

    • CONGRATULATIONS! You will have finished the 44th Annual ORRRC/City of Miamisburg Turkey Trot


  • Virtual Registration Closes: 11:59pm on Saturday, November 12th.

  • Virtual Race Packet Mailing: Virtual race packets will be mailed from Fairfield, Ohio. It is our goal that you will have your packet by Thanksgiving day.
