To our runners, walkers, friends, and community members,
It is with great sadness that we had to cancel the 3rd Annual Gem City Classic 15K & 5K. Given the ongoing public health crisis, the city of Dayton and Fiver Rivers Metroparks have revoked our permits allowing us to hold the event.
That said, we went virtual! You can still join us if you'd like, simply x out of this announcement and click register! We know that some of you are tired of the virtual events, we totally understand. We are itching to get back to normal next year as well! The Advanced Running Project is owned and operated by a competitive runner who longs to race and to produce races. Thus this is obviously not the end result we wanted either as we had to cancel every race we were set to produce this year. Know that we will be back though and we appreciate your continued support in the interim. Until then, keep running because running isn't cancelled!
Advanced Running Project
Set in beautiful downtown Dayton on a route that crosses rivers, passes beautiful metroparks, and highlights so many of the city's greatest features. The course alone warrants participating. That's just the beginning though.
This race also includes beautiful finisher medals, handmade wooden awards, free race photos, fresh local pizza and chocolate chip cookies at the finish, and a live DJ to keep the energy high.
This will be the fall race you don't want to miss!
Stay up to date on all things local running and be the first to know about new races, events, and medal reveals!
