    Join us for a fun, family-oriented race to start off the 4th of July holiday. There's something for everyone - a one-mile race on residential streets with a great downhill finish and a picturesque 10K out-and-back course with rolling hills.

    While the courses haven't changed, some of our procedures have to keep everyone safe. Please read through our event requirements before registering:

    • The race will be held, weather permitting.
    • The race will be timed, however, not chip timed.
    • If you don't feel well on race day, please sit this one out.
    • Organizers will decide any COVID-19 protocols, if necessary, the week of the race based on local conditions and CDC guidelines.
    • As always, you participate at your own risk.
    • There are no refunds. 

    Run proceeds support youth in the Milton community throughout the year through the club's Kids on Stage Theater program, community projects, sports team sponsorships, high school scholarships, library summer reading program and Breakfast with Santa.
