SAFETY MODIFICATIONS

COVID CONCERNS- Thanks to the City Departments of Milford, we will be able to present a completely outdoor event. No building will be used, safe distances and safety protocols will be in place, and State guidelines will be met.
HOWEVER-we all must be prepared for any change that can happen at any time which may mean a suspension of this live event, and result in a 'virtual' run. 

With fixed costs and pre-payment of many items, this means we CANNOT under any conditions REFUND any registration fees (however, we can issue a credit to be allowed toward our 2023 event). Whether we are live or virtual our commitment to our Veterans will be maintained. We hope you can support this commitment and join us.
 
IMPORTANT DETAIL- There will be a 350 person limit for this 5k event. We need 200 people just to break even with our fixed costs! We encourage everyone to donate any additional amount to the Milford Veterans.  
MASKS following MHD regulations - We must adhere to all safety protocols so please help us by keeping us safe!
 

WE NEED YOUR HELP FOR A SAFE START- If you are truly at a speedy running level (6-7min pace per mile or under) we urge you to be at the start early and ready to go at 9 am. This will avoid crowding on the course and help everyone to run more safely. Thanks!

 

ON THE COURSE- We ask you to stay safe, run on the side indicated and be aware that roads are open.
