Our races are directed by an RRCA Certified Race Director. We strive to produce professional events and act ethically and transparently as is required of all RRCA Certified Race Directors.
The Brook Mills 10K is comprised of a 10K and a 1K Kids Fun Run. All events will take place on Saturday, September 14th, 2019.
Kid’s Race – 8:00 a.m.
10K Run – 8:30 a.m.
Children can be registered online or at packet pickup on race day.
While there is no firm age maximum, we generally encourage children over the age of 12 to participate in the 10K.
While the Brook Mills 10K is not part of the Miami Valley Race Series in 2019, it will be in 2020. The series is currently comprised of three races including the Crossroads 5K on June 8th in Vandalia, the Historic Germantown 8K on August 3rd in Germantown, and the Gem City Classic 15K and 5K on October 12th in downtown Dayton. Runners who complete all three races in the series will earn a fourth medal that connects to the first three medals to create one beautiful award!
All events are walker-friendly. With an 8:30 a.m. start, the 10K course has a maximum course time of 2 hours or until 10:30 a.m. Any runner/walker that fails to maintain the minimum pace will be asked to move onto the sidewalks to facilitate opening the roads on time. The Finish Line will officially close at 10:30 a.m.
iPods or other music devices are allowed but we ask that you stay safe and aware by keeping volumes at a low level in case of emergency. Rule 144.3 of USA Track and Field enables race directors to choose to allow the use of headphones by runners in non-championship races. At this time we have chosen to allow runners to be able to compete with headphones in.

Early Packet Pickup is available at New Balance Dayton (304 East Stroop Road, Dayton, Ohio) from 4:00 – 8:00pm on September 13th. Race day Packet Pickup is located in front of the Bellbrook Sugarcreek Family Resource Center (51 S East Street, Bellbrook, Ohio) from 7:00 – 8:30 AM.
Since there will only be race day packet pickup, all participants must pick up their own packet.
Absolutely! One can register at Packet Pickup from 6:30 a.m. to 7:50 a.m. on Saturday the 14th of September at the Bellbrook Sugarcreek Family Resource Center.
No. We do not allow the transfer of registrations.
While there are no refunds, we do allow deferrals in cases of injury or emergency. Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the event taking place notifying us of your intent to defer. When registration opens for the following year, you will need to email us again with a copy of the original email as proof.
The Crossroads 5K has partnered with Speedy Feet, the leading event timer in southwest Ohio to provide chip timing. Runners will have a disposable timing chip on the backside of their bib and will not have to do anything in order to get 100% accurate results!
While we have no age minimums, we encourage parents of young children to run alongside them during the event to create a safe and memorable family experience for all. Additionally, all those under the age of 18 must have a parental waiver signed.
Baby joggers and strollers are permitted but we ask that you start at the back of the field. Roller blades, skateboards, bicycles or any other wheeled devices are not allowed. Further, USATF does not allow dogs on the course.
Yes! If the shirt you doesn’t fit the way you like, you can exchange on the spot at Packet Pickup!
No there will not. We encourage participants to securely store your gear in a locked vehicle during the event.
On average, at 8 AM in mid-September one should expect humid conditions and a temperature in the low 60s to low 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.
This USATF certified 10K is scenic but does have some elevation gain, notably at the start of the third mile there is a hill that climbs 150 feet over 0.6 miles. The race begins on East St and makes its way to Washington Mill Rd where it travels north and east over the Little Miami River. It takes a turn south through a very quiet and lovely neighborhood (this is where the hill is!) and eventually emerges onto Lower Bellbrook Road where it descends 150 feet and flattens out as the route returns to the finish line.
The course will be certified before the race date with a USATF Certification # added to the race website.
Yes! There is a water station at 2.3M at the start of the uphill and one at 4.6M before the downhill on Lower Bellbrook Rd!!
Yes! Bellbrook EMS will be onsite with trained staff to deal with any medical issues that arise during the event!
Um, of course!
All runners will receive a beautiful finisher medal with a custom ribbon designed by Ashworth Awards. We aren’t leaving out the children either, every kid who finishes the kids runs will receive a finisher medal too!
Runners who place top 3 overall, top 3 in the masters division, or top 3 in any age group will receive a handmade in the USA wooden award designed and made by our friends at Elevation Culture, trust us, it’s worth it to run fast to get one of these!
The award ceremony will take place at approximately 10:00 a.m.
The Advanced Running Project stands firmly behind all participants who train with integrity and in order to support the overwhelming majority of runners and walkers who participate in our sport fairly, we have a very strict policy in regards to all dopers, cheaters, liars, etc. If we find that a registered participant has been found guilty of doping, has been caught cheating, or has been caught lying about their age or home of record in an attempt to win an award within the past 10 years, they will be permanently banned from all future races and their names removed from our results. Further, we will contact all race directors and running clubs both local and in neighboring states as well as local, regional, and national governing bodies of the sport making them aware of such violations.
We take these issues very seriously and will address them on a case by case basis as we are made aware of any rule breaking at our events.
The race has partnered with the Bellbrook Sugarcreek Family Resource Center. We donate a portion of race proceeds to their cause and encourage all runners to make donations to them both monetarily and in needed supplies.
We absolutely do! When you register using the same account as you did for your ORRRC membership, you will receive 15% off your race entry. This discount does not apply to virtual entries or kid’s runs.
We certainly do! Runners 18 and under always get $10 off what ever the current registration price is. No discount codes required, simply enter the birth date of the runner and our registration partner will add in the discount.
You bet! Groups of 4-6 get $3.50 off per registration and groups of 7 or more get $5 off per registration. No discount codes required, our registration partner handles the pricing automatically when you register a group of 4 or more.
