The New Milford Education Foundation is asking you to stretch your legs for their first annual Run for Your Lives: 10K Grand Prix and 3-Mile Fun Run on Oct. 27.
Runners from all over are welcomed to come out and participate in a USA Track and Field Sanctioned 10K Grand Prix race. The 10K will start at 9 a.m. sharp and runners are asked to be at the starting line by 8:45 a.m. This is a perfect way to get warmed up for the ING New York City Marathon on Nov. 3.
For those residents who like to have fun and stay in shape, the 3-mile Fun Run will start at 10:30 a.m. The Fun Run is open to runners of all ages and abilities, including walkers and folks with strollers. Runners are also encouraged to wear a costume for the 3-mile run/walk.
There will be a series of races and games for kids starting around noon on the track behind the New Milford High School. Among the contests will be a 100-meter dash, a Halloween relay and a costume contest.
All participants will receive an inaugural race t-shirt. An after party with more prizes, a costume contest and a 50/50 drawing will begin at Jersey Boys at 1 p.m. All proceeds from the event are put toward New Milford’s schools.
