Milton Optimists 2023 Independence Day Run/Walk

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

About this event

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, a 5K walking route along part of the Ice Age Trail, 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 be timed, however, not chip timed.
  • 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. 

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!
