Cool Weather Ideal for Milton Mayor's Run Saturday Morning

Most runners didn't mind the damp day, and the cool temperature was a benefit – at least until they had to stand still waiting for medals to be handed out.

The annual Milton Mayor's Run was held Saturday morning, Feb. 23, and Deerfield Parkway saw a stream of runners take off down the 5K route that started and ended at Kohl's at Ga 9 and Deerfield Parkway.

Mayor Joe Lockwood may not have run, but Recreation Director Jim Cregge and a few other city employees completed the 3.1-mile course.

The 5K was a Peachtree qualifier, so those runners who did better than average times were probably thankful for the relatively flat course.

The proceeds from the race will go toward funding Milton Parks and Recreation projects.

The Rotary Club of Windward helped with the race, handing out water by Milton City Hall and after the race was over in the Kohl's parking lot.

Kohl's was the major sponsor of the race.
