Monday is the online deadline to register for the Turkey Trot in Miamisburg, where thousands of people are expected Thanksgiving Day, as are traffic issues and road closings.
No race-day registration will be accepted for the five-mile run or one-mile fun walk/run, presented for the 41st year by the Ohio River Road Runners Club.
Those not yet registered must do so online by 8 a.m. Monday at https://www.miamisburgtrot.com, according to the event’s website.
In-person registration will also be accepted on Expo Day from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday at Riverfront Park on North Miami Avenue, the hub of event activities.
The fee for the five-miler is $35, but $30 for ages 14 and under. The cost of the one-mile event is $25, according to organizers.
Packet pick-up is also set to occur during Expo Day hours or from 7-8:15 a.m. Thursday, according to the website.
On Thursday, “street closures will be at a minimum to avoid impact to the community,” according to the city, which expects about 10,000 participants.
Closings that include parts of 15 roads in around the course will begin at 6:30 a.m. and are all scheduled to reopen by noon, city officials said.
On-street parking will not be permitted Thursday morning on Main and Fifth streets or on Linden and Mound avenues, according to the city.
The race is set to begin at 8:30 a.m. at the intersection of Main Street and Linden Avenue. The five-mile route will include Main, Linden, Fifth, Mound, Vanguard Boulevard, Dayton-Cincinnati Pike and Miami Avenue, according to the city.
