Turkey Burnoff

November 26, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 10:30 am

Race Overview

Work off those extra holiday calories at one of our most popular club races, the Turkey Burnoff at Seneca Creek State Park in Gaithersburg. The course is scenic and you’ll burn off that third helping of pumpkin pie on the gently rolling hills. The park deer occasionally make a cameo appearance, and they don’t brake for runners!

ATTENTION NON-MCRRC MEMBERS! Registration is $10 for adults 18 & over and $5 for participants under the age of 18.  Avoid the rush on race day & register online today! Online registration will close at 4 PM on Friday.

Registration is race-day only for MCRRC Members, so plan to arrive at least 45 minutes early to park and walk to the signup area.

The park has only limited parking. Please make every attempt to carpool and arrive early. Per Seneca Creek State Park management’s request, the gate at the ranger’s booth (where you would pay the entry fee during warmer months) will be closed at 7:45 AM sharp. You must arrive before then in order to park in the grassy field near the Start/Finish area. If you arrive at 7:45 AM or later, you will have to park in the small paved lot to the left of the ranger booth and walk/jog approximately a quarter-mile to the Start line. Don’t delay and avoid having to climb one extra hill!

The race is part of our low-key club race series and is free for MCRRC members, $10 for non-members 18 and over, and $5 for non-members under 18. Registration is race-day only starting an hour before the race. Use the Low Key Club Race Entry Form.
