9th Annual MILFORD MOVES FOR VETERANS

5K Run / Walk on Sunday, June 23, 2024

 

WE HAVE MOVED OUR RACE WEEKEND!

Formerly on Father's Day our family-friendly event is now a week later. Join us for a great fundraiser honoring local Veterans.

 

All proceeds raised will be donated to Milford's Veterans groups: American Legion, Disabled American Veterans (DAV), Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA) and Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association (CVMA).

Please consider a donation of any amount to help our veterans in Milford. 

We encourage all abilities to join us. You’ll love our course!

This event will be held in compliance with State of CT, city and health department guidelines. 
 

  • The 5k Run/Walk is bib chip-timed from the start & finish- you receive your ‘net’ time.
  • All runners & walkers are eligible for prizes based on their time. 
  • Plenty of parking in nearby lots, at The Milford Bank on the green, and Colony Grill parking lots (no parking on the racecourse).
  • A free Kids, safe “Run For The Flag” Fun Run- a non-competitive, 200-yard scamper for kids 12 and younger only - weather permitting. All kids receive a flag and medal at the finish.
  • A special swag giveaway is guaranteed to the first 350 entrants.
  • We will give out the “Most Patriotic Award” which could be identified at the start. So be prepared! Show off your stars and stripes!

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 left side of the road or as indicated. PLEASE be aware that roads are open and police may be on duty.
