The Gem City Classic is Dayton's premier race. Every October runners from all over converge in the heart of the Dayton to enjoy a 15K or 5K while seeing the sights and sounds that give our city it's namesake, the Gem City! Participants are treated to a flat and fast course that crosses rivers, passes metroparks and memorials and finishes right outside of iconic Dragon Stadium. Every participant receives a beautiful finisher medal featuring the Dayton skyline, free race photos, and awesome post race food. 15K participants get a hoodie and 5K participants get a long sleeve shirt. Come out and see why the Gem City is one of the most anticipated running events of the year!
