Milton Mayor Wants You to Have a Blast in His Run

The annual Mayor's Run will be Feb. 23, and applications already are available.

Milton Mayor Joe Lockwood had a blast at last year's Mayor's Run, and he wants everyone out there again this year. Applications and sponsorship packets for the 2013 Milton Mayor's Run, to be held at 7:30 a.m. Feb. 23 at the Kohl's on Ga. 9, are now available at the City of Milton's Web site.

"The last mayor's run was a blast," said Milton Mayor Joe Lockwood, who ran the race with friends and family. "I can't wait to see everyone out there with us again on Deerfield Parkway, staying fit and having fun."

Participant application and sponsorship application forms are online.

For the third year, the Milton Mayor's Run will begin and end at the Kohl's in the Deerfield Place shopping center at the corner of Ga. 9 and Deerfield Parkway (click here for directions), said Angela Thompson, Milton's special events coordinator. It includes a 5K race, 1K fun run and tot trot. The race will be a Peachtree qualifier.

Cost for participation is $25 if received before Feb. 18 and $30 after. That fee includes a quality, moisture-wicking T-shirt with the logo displayed below and plenty of food and fluids after the race.

Sponsorship levels include packages from $250 to $5,000 for title sponsors. Deadline for sponsorship is Feb. 4 to ensure inclusion in all advertising.
All funds raised by this event will directly benefit The City of Milton Parks and Recreation Department and its efforts to provide citizens with access to greenspaces, parks, trails, facilities, and recreation programs and activities.

The 5K race will circle Deerfield Parkway, meaning it will be flat and fast. Awards will go to the 5K Male and Female Open and Masters and to the top 3 finishers in the various age groups.
