Description

The New Milford Parks & Recreation Department is excited to announce that our 8-mile and 5K road races will be happening on July 27th! Deep in tradition, our 8-mile race is now on its 56th year, and our 5K race is on its 21st year. The New Milford 8-mile Road Race is the third oldest race of its kind in the state, and one of the most challenging in the area. Runners test themselves during this hilly course through rural New Milford, including the famous Canterbury Hill. 5K runners enjoy a challenging and scenic course up into New Milford, and both races finish on the south side of the town green.


Both the 8-mile and 5K race will start at 8:30 AM sharp.

1/4 Mile Kids Run The Green

Calling all 8 and under runners! Join us for our 2nd Annual "Kids Run the Green" on Saturday July 27, 2024. We're excited to be offering a race just for our kids, to happen in tandem with our 8-Mile and 5K road races. Once the 8-mile and 5K runners clear the start line, we kick off a .25 mile run up the northbound side of main street, crossing over near First Congregational Church, and then back down, crossing the finish line near the corner of Main St. and Bank St. The first 50 kids will receive a magnet and an official "Kids Run the Green" t-shirt. Registration is just $5 and what a great way to get our future runners ready for the bigger races!
