Half marathon runners will do the course loop 2 times, and full marathoners will complete 4 laps.

Packet Pick-up Procedures on January 1st

Runners can pick up their race packets only on race day at the Community Center in Miamisburg Community Park at 550 First St. in Miamisburg, Ohio. Here is how packet pickup will be run:

  • Please arrive at your designated time, though you can pick up as needed. We are encouraging people to follow the suggested times to limit lines and so we can space out athletes. 
  • You are welcome to pick-up packets for friends or family members. We hope this will limit groups of people and cut down on the number of people picking up packets.
  • Put on your mask. All athletes will be asked to wear a mask when they are not actively running. Disposable masks will be available at the doors of the Community Center for those who forget, lose or damage their mask on race day. 
  • Athletes will line up outside the Community Center front doors, spacing 6 feet apart. A staff member will discuss with you the results of your COVID-19 Home Safety Self Check (see above). If you can answer no to all the questions, you will be asked to move to one of our packet pickup stations.
  • Give the staff your name, and they will tell you your starting race wave and give you your race packet, which includes:
    • NOTE: this goes on your shoe; follow the instructions on the envelope
    • NOTE: Wear this on the front on your person
    • NOTE: Please let the staff member know if you are gluten-free, as we have a separate option for these folks
    • Timing Chip (for all timed races; fun runners will not receive a timing chip)
    • Race Bib and pins (everyone gets these)
    • Pullover (for all timed athletes who registered in time to get one)
    • Finisher Medal (for all timed athletes who registered in time to get one)
    • Pancake Breakfast to Go (everyone gets this)
  • Leave through the back of the facility, and prepare for your race.

Timing Chips

Everyone in a timed race (not including the fun run) will have a timing chip that you attach to your shoe; the timing chip is not on your bib. Inside your race packet, you'll find a timing chip and plastic ties to easily attach the chip to your shoe. We'll have examples, and staff members will be able to assist you if you have any questions. This video can help you prepare as well.

At the end of the race, a staff member will remove the timing chip. Should you leave the race with your timing chip, please mail it to Zoom Multisport Racing, 931 Patterson Road, Dayton, Ohio 45419. 

Beast athletes, you will wear the same timing chip and bib for all three races; you do NOT have to change out your bib between races. 

Everyone should display their bib on the front of them, so we can identify you in the case of an emergency. 

Additional Safety Protocols at Packet Pickup

  • All race staff will be wearing masks. Athletes are required to wear a mask. We will have disposable masks at the door for those who need them. 
  • We will limit people inside the Community Center to less than 10 at any given time.
  • There will be hand sanitizer available at the Community Center.
  • Race bags will be pre-packed and handled by staff that have passed a COVID-19 Home Safety Self Check. 

Race Start Times

  • 7:30 a.m.-8:00 a.m.: Full Marathon and Ultra Beast 4-Race Challenge
  • 8:00 a.m.-8:30 a.m.: Half Marathon Start

  • 10:30 a.m.-11:00 a.m.: 1-Mile Start 

Time Trial Race Starting Procedures on January 1st

  • Athletes will start in waves. Waves will be assigned and emailed out on December 30th. If you register after this date we will tell you your wave at Packet Pick-up and your wave will be written on your Bib. Race waves will contain approximately 24 athletes. 
  • Please arrive at the Start Line line at least 10 minutes before the start of your wave, but no earlier for social distance purposes.
  • The start line will be a large blue inflatable arch (or orange flags in the case of high winds). Starting corrals will be behind the large arch (or start flags) and be marked with signs and temporary fencing. The race starter will show you to your starting corral. Inside the starting corral there will be a grid of cones to designate 6 feet distance from other runners. Please stand next to a cone of your choosing. 
  • Athletes will start 3 at a time, every 10 seconds. The starter will release the first 3 athletes. The starter will then call the next row to move forward to the start line. Athletes will move up one row of cones closer to the start as each successive group of 3 starts the race.
  • Once all athletes in the wave have started the race, the starter will call the next wave, who will follow the same procedures.  

The Beast 3-Race Challenge and Ultra Beast 4-Race Challenge

The Beast Challenge is when athletes complete multiple races in the same day, back to back. This is a new format for racing, and is only for the strongest, bravest, and most daring athletes among us! 

The Beast 3-Race Challenge is completing the 1-mile, 5K & 10K in one day.

The Ultra Beast 4-Race Challenge is completing the 1-mile, 5K, 10K & Half Marathon in one day. 

How This Will Work

  1. Time Trial start for all athletes in their designated wave
  2. Complete first race (1-mile)
  3. Cross the finish line
  4. Recover as needed, but be aware of your time, as you need to complete all your races before timing ends.
  5. Head back to the start line, using the designated Beast Start corral. You will use the same bib and timing chip for all your races.
  6. Alert the timer and starter
  7. Start your next race by crossing the timing mat.
  8. Complete your next race (5K)
  9. Repeat steps 3-7
  10. Complete your next race (10K)
  11. If you are doing the Beast 3-Race Challenge you are done. Go home and celebrate!
  12. If you are doing the Ultra Beast 4-Race Challenge, complete your next race (Half Marathon)
  13. Complete steps 3-7
  14. Now Beast 4-Race Challenge folks are done. Go home and celebrate!

If you decide to stop early or are unable to complete all of the races, please alert the timer or starter.  

The Finish Line

  • The Finish Line will be right next to the Start Line, and will be marked with the word “Finish” and have the Speedy Feet Logos on it.

Results

Medical Support

On race day, Dr. Curry and his team from Integrative Health and Sports Performance (IHSP) and Sugarcreek Chiropractic will be on site to provide medical support for our event. Please stop by their medical tent to say hello, to get information on all the ways they can help you stay healthy and perform at your peak! They are online at https://ihsp-oh.com/ 

Should an emergency arise on race day, please call 911 and inform a staff member or Dr. Curry’s team.  

Inclement & Cold Weather 

Our race is scheduled in Ohio on January 1st. Cold weather, snow, ice, and freezing wind chills could be a part of the race day weather. Please prepare for these conditions. Dress warmly! Clothing should provide an internal layer that allows evaporation of sweat with minimal absorption, a middle layer that provides insulation, and a removable external layer that is wind and water resistant and allows for evaporation of moisture. Toes, fingers, ears, and skin should be protected the most. Remove wet clothing as soon as practical and replace with dry, clean items. If you are doing multiple races, it is advised you have dry clothes to change into following each race.  In between races, please return to your cars to get out of the cold. In the case of inclement weather, cold temperatures or excessive snow races may be shortened, delayed or have a time limit imposed.

In Case the Race is Canceled due to Weather or COVID

As a last resort in the case of inclement weather, or as required by the State of Ohio and/or the Montgomery County Board of Health the event may be canceled. We will inform racers via email, text, social media and the event webpage. In this case, we will move the race to a virtual format. If we move to a virtual event, you will have until January 15, 2021, to complete your designated race. We will provide you a link to submit your race results. We will mail you all your swag and goodies by mid-January. We do not offer any refunds.
