The 7th Annual Riverwalk Run 5Krun/walk will be held on Saturday, October 4 at 5 p.m. in downtown Milton, Florida. The course features historic, beautiful scenery with a quick tour of the city and the Blackwater River.
The past five races have been extremely successful; raising nearly $58,000 combined. Proceeds have allowed us to purchase new equipment for our youth sports programs, make upgrades to our recreation facilities and provide free family-friendly events to our community.
Even with a predicted hurricane on race day, over 550 people attended the 2013 race. This year the goal is to attract 700+ people to downtown Milton this year and raise $10,000.
The race takes runners along a route of paved streets, a concrete trail and a wooden boardwalk overlooking the river.
The event is certified by the United States Track and Field (USTF) governing body and can be utilized to post a certified race time. Presented by the Milton Parks & Recreation Department, run proceeds benefit department activities including youth sports and activities for seniors.
