Turkey Trot the Boneyard

The 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (AMARG) "Boneyard" will be hosting a Turkey Trot on Saturday, December 12 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 bring your race bib to enter the event.

Registration Details

Registration for the race has closed. There will be no late or day-of registration.

A free t-shirt will be given to everybody that registers! We will make every effort to give you one in the size you specified, but this is not a guarantee.

The Boneyard Run: Turkey Trot is classified as a "fun run", so official times will not be recorded and medals will not be awarded.

The difference is in the setting...

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.

Why the Boneyard?

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.
