Description

The Kyle Milliken Memorial Run is an annual 5 mile run held at the University of Connecticut (UCONN) in Storrs, CT on the UCONN Track & Field "Bone Mill" training course. This run honors Navy Special Warfare Operator Senior Chief Petty Officer (SEAL) Kyle Jeffrey Milliken who was KIA serving his country on May 5, 2017 in East Africa. Kyle was a highly decorated combat veteran with numerous awards and 10 deployments. He was an amazing father, husband, son, brother, and friend, whose passion for life was contagious. His sharp wit and magnetic personality made lasting impressions on everyone he met. Kyle was highly competitive in all aspects of his life. He displayed incredible talent as a dedicated warrior, yet he stayed grounded through his faith, family, and teammates. Kyle's captivating presence and colorful storytelling regularly had an entire room in hysterics. He was the cornerstone of his family, friends, and team. In 1998, Kyle walked onto UCONN's Track and Field program where he made every single one of his teammates a better runner, athlete, and person with his leadership, dedication, and unwavering commitment and drive--the very foundation for his success as a SEAL and in life.

This race supports The Kyle Milliken Memorial Fund which was created in Kyle's memory to raise funds towards providing scholarship and capital project support to the UCONN Men's Track and Field program.
