General Questions

  • What is the weather usually like?
    • On average, at 7:30 AM in early August one should expect humid conditions and a temperature in the high 60s to mid 70s. However these are merely averages and weather can change any given day. We will update participants on what to expect in the 48 hour window before the race.
  • Am I allowed to wear headphones during the race?
    • The use of personal music devices is strongly discouraged at this race. To enjoy all that our race has to offer and for the safety of all participants, Dayton Track Club encourages a headphone-free environment during The Historic Germantown 8K.

      We believe your race experience and those around you will be greatly enhanced by leaving the headphones at home or in the car. Running headphone-free allows opportunities to develop camaraderie with your fellow runners and to enjoy everything the race has to offer. Plus, volunteers and spectators will be on course cheering you on and providing directions to help get you to the finish line. Runner safety has always been and will always be a top priority for our event. Please be mindful of other participants and respect the race personnel to ensure a safe and enjoyable race for everyone.
