Milton Optimist 2021 Independence Day Run

Milton High School • 114 W. High Street MiltonWI  53563 Organized by Milton Optimists

About this event

We're excited to be back for an in-person event this year! 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 NOT be timed. Please time yourself.
  • Mask Update: following CDC guidelines, VACCINATED individuals do not need to wear masks. UNVACCINATED individuals, please wear a mask until your race starts.
  • There will be a rolling start to reduce congestion.
  • Please maintain social distance of 6 feet from other participants if you are UNVACCINATED. Families/pods may run together.
  • If you don't feel well on race day, please sit this one out.
  • As always, you participate at your own risk.
  • There are no refunds.

Thank you for helping to keep everyone healthy. 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.

We can't wait to see you on July 4th!
