The annual 5K Milk Run will be taking place at a new time and a new place during this year’s Dairy Festival. Race Director Holly Fain discuss the Milk Run on KSST’s Good Morning Show with Enola Gay Tuesday morning. The Milk Run is scheduled for Friday night at 7 p.m., a new date and time. The place will be different as well. The Milk Run will begin at Shannon Oaks Church, the location of the Hot Air Balloon lift and glow, go west on the service road and then left again on Sewell Lane and end at Shannon Oaks.
Those running in the 5K will also be able to view the balloon event following their run. Currently 160 are registered to run and more are expected. This is over 60 more than registered last year according to Fain. Fain said she is thankful for the support of local police and the sheriff’s department in traffic control for the safety of the runners.
Cost to register for the run is $35. for individuals and $20 per person for groups of five or more. Awards will be given to race winners and groups as well. Registration is available here.
