Thank you for your interest in the "Lighting Up the Sky" Milltown 4th of July In Person and Virtual 5K Race.
We will will have an In-Person 5K race and 1K Fun Run. But we will still offer a Virtual 5K and 1K fun Run for those that would like to support our cause. As the Race is just one part of the Milltown 4th of July festivities, we hope you will join us for a day of fun, laughter and patriotism. As the race is always well attended with 500 - 1000 racers annually, it is such a big community and regional event to celebrate our country's independence day.
Please join us in supporting many local and area charities by participating in the "Lighting Up the Sky" Milltown 5K. Please note: The virtual race will run from June 1st to July 4th. Participants can complete a 5K (3.1 miles) wherever you choose to complete the run/walk. You can run in your yard, in your home, on a street, on a treadmill, wherever it is convenient to participate. We will also have our Fun Run that will start off at 7:30 am for those looking to participate but for a much shorter course of only 1 mile.
