MUST HAVE BASE ACCESS
***NOT OPEN TO GENERAL PUBLIC***
The 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (AMARG) "Boneyard" will be hosting a Turkey Trot on Saturday, November 21 to Active Duty, base personnel, and their families with base access.
This unique event allows participants to complete a 10k run or a 5k run/walk through the world's largest aircraft storage and preservation facility and gives runners an opportunity to see the Boneyard's vast national treasures!
For the Turkey Trot, a new route will be taken from last year's Boneyard Run.
This event is FREE and **exclusive to those with BASE ACCESS ONLY.**
It is not open to the general public.
You must have base access to register and attend.
Registration is limited to those with base access ONLY. Because this Turkey Trot event is free, a simplified version of online registration will be available from now until Monday, October 26 at 11:59 PM. There will be a 5k and a 10k race option to choose from.
A free t-shirt will be given to the first 500 participants who sign up! We will make every effort to give you one in the size you specified, but this is not a guarantee. Free t-shirt recipients will be emailed prior to the packet pick-up dates to confirm they will be receiving one. All shirts will be unisex adult sizes ranging from Small to Extra Large. If you wish to be eligible to receive a free t-shirt, you must sign up individually.
Packet pick-up dates will be November 12 & 13 from 10AM-2PM at Stripes Cafe on base. Race packets will include Race Day details, a 10k race signifier (if you register for the 10k), and your free t-shirt (if you are eligible for one.)
The Boneyard Run: Turkey Trot is classified as a "fun run", so official times will not be recorded and medals will not be awarded. Likewise, race day bibs will not be provided.
The 5k course will be for those wishing to run or walk. The route will be a loop through the northeast corner of the Boneyard, showcasing the wonders of "Display Row", B-52s, and other aircraft.
The 10k route will take participants into a new area of The Boneyard that has not been run before. This path will take you across the Kolb Rd. overpass and into a section of C-5 Galaxies.

End of event
The 309th AMARG provides depot-level maintenance, aircraft regeneration, storage and preservation, aircraft parts reclamation and disposal in support of the U.S. Department of Defense, allied warfighters and other government agencies. The density of aircraft essentially makes this the largest air fleet in the world, other than the United States Air Force. The 2,600-acre site has nearly 4,000 aircraft and is typically only open to employees and the occasional bus tour.
The Boneyard Run is truly a one-of-a-kind experience. Runners will have the rare opportunity to tread between the aircraft that make up the largest air power reservoir in the world.
This event is limited to Active Duty, base personnel, and their families with base access. Base access must be coordinated and obtained prior to race day. Please remember to take your DoD ID with you into the AMARG area.
If you have any questions about base access, please call the Davis-Monthan Visitor's Center.
Parking for registrants will be available in specified lots off Wilmot and Picacho, on the south and east sides of the Med Group Clinic.
Gate openings will be confirmed prior to the event.
After parking in the allotted areas, registrants will then be able to walk through the AMARG gate to the event area. No shuttles will be provided. Be sure to bring your DoD ID card with you.
