About the Freedom 5K
Milton's Freedom 5K seeks to provide the greater Milton community with a fun, laid back race that promotes not only the physical benefits of running, but also the camaraderie developed when a group of people sweat together to achieve a common goal.

now in its 12th year
* It's the kick-off event to Milton's Fourth of July celebration
* Has grown from 35 participants its first two years to over 125 runners today
* 100 percent of the proceeds go to the Milton Track and Cross Country Remembrance Scholarship
Who We Support:
In 2006, the Freedom 5K committee established the Milton Track and Cross Country Remembrance Scholarship. Awarded to an outstanding senior member of the Milton High School track and/or cross country team, the scholarship honors the dedication and unselfishness of our community volunteers.
