The Historic Germantown 8K is a flat, fast, certified, and chip timed race in beautiful Germantown, Ohio on the first Saturday in August. Located just southwest of Dayton, Ohio, Germantown is a small and historic town founded in the early 1800s. The race begins and ends at Veterans Memorial Park and takes runners alongside the river, right through the historic covered bridge (built in 1872), and finishes by blazing through the lovely downtown that has been added into the National Historic Register.All runners will receive a Tech Tee, custom finisher medal, and a lot of great food at the finish. There are cash prizes for the top 3 runners and handmade in the USA wooden awards for all overall and age group winners three deep. The event also has a 1K kids' fun run with dog tag medals for all children who finish! A portion of the proceeds will go to supporting the efforts of the Historical Society of Germantown.
