ORRRC Xenia Marathon, Half-Marathon, and 10K

When: April 7, 2024
Where: Xenia, OH
Race type(s): Marathon, Half-Marathon, and 10K

The ORRRC Xenia Marathon, Half-Marathon, and 10K are scenic, fast courses through the town of Xenia, Ohio! The race is a community tradition that has been going strong for over 50 years! Every year we learn and grow based on feedback from the previous year’s event and with that in mind we’re pleased to announce some upgrades to the 2024 event noted in bold below. We hope you’ll run with us in 2024!

COURSE
The races run concentric paths, with the same start, turn-offs for the half-marathon and 10K, and the same finish line! The course starts at the Xenia YMCA, then runs into downtown Xenia before taking a tour of some of its neighborhoods, then using a mix of scenic rail-trail and neighborhood streets to get you home to the finish line! More information and a map is available at www.runxenia.comWe’ll have some minor modifications to the 10K & Half-marathon courses this year to improve the accuracy of our distances. Our marathon course will not be affected and will continue to be a certified Boston Qualifier event.

RACE SHIRTS
This year we’re taking a more environmentally friendly approach to our race shirts. First off, every participant will have the option to decline a race shirt when registering (we get it – sometimes there just isn’t room in the closet for another race shirt). If you decline a race shirt you will receive a $10 discount off your registration fee! However, if you do want a shirt we have an awesome (Carbon Free Certified) tri-blend shirt available in both unisex and women’s cuts. Thanks for supporting our sustainability efforts for the event – you can’t go wrong this year whether you’re registering for the shirt or no-shirt option. Shirt sizing info is available at RunXenia.com

CHARITABLE BENEFITS
The ORRRC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, with a mission to encourage running and walking throughout the Miami Valley and Dayton region! This race supports us in that mission, by providing our all-volunteer organization with the funds to enable several youth running programs in the area, provide educational scholarships to deserving members of our running community, and to provide no/low-cost races to our members to remove fiscal barriers to fitness! New this year, we’re offering the ability for participants to make additional donations to the ORRRC Community & Scholarship fund through RunSignUp. 100% of additional donations made by participants will go towards the club’s support of youth running programs & educational scholarships.

FOOD & AMENITIES
Our race has a wonderful post-race party with warm food items and all of the standard race fare (e.g. water, bananas, energy drinks, soda, etc.)! We heard your feedback from last year and are excited to announce that in 2024 we will offer a far better selection of finish line snacks & beverages! These will be available to all participants at the finish line.  We also are hard at work on improving our menu for our post-race meal – more details on that to come via our Facebook page in the months leading up to the event!
