Event Information

This fun low-key event is not your everyday ORRRC race. The Gift Exchange 5k is a fun way to celebrate the holidays through running. Instead of an entry fee, all participants are to bring a wrapped gift (valued between $5-$7). At the end of the race, we will have a giant gift exchange (hence the name of the race) among all participants. WHEN: Saturday, December 14. The race starts at 10:00am. LOCATION: Kettering Recreation Complex, 2900 Glengarry Drive, Kettering, OH 45420. REGISTRATION: Race Day Registration Only. We recommend you arrive at least one hour before the race to park, register and warm-up prior to the race start. FEES: There are no traditional entry fees for this race. Instead of an entry fee, all participants are to bring a wrapped gift valued between $5 to $7 to be entered in the gift exchange. AWARDS: All participants will receive a gift as part of the gift exchange. Overall male and overall female winners will receive a special gift in addition to the exchange gift. RACE DIRECTORS: Karen Gildow VOLUNTEERS: Meet some new friends and have a great time while making a valuable contribution to the local running community by volunteering at this event. If you would like to help, please contact the race director(s) (above), and we'll be sure to find a job for you!
