IMPORTANT NOTICE – TIME CHANGE! At the request of the park service, this race will now start at 8:00 AM!
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!
Registration is race-day only for MCRRC Members, so plan to arrive at least 30 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. We will monitor parking very closely and turn away cars once we reach the limit. If you are turned away, there is limited parking available at the St.Rose of Lima Parish church (11701 Clopper Rd) just up the road from the park entrance. However, if you have to park out there, you will have a long walk to the start line. We can not allow any illegal parking, as doing so will jeopardize our ability to obtain permits for future races in Seneca Creek State Park. Pets of all kind, whether on a leash or not, are not allowed in Seneca Creek State Park.
