Milo is looking forward to another Color Milo 5K fun run/walk on Saturday, October 3 !
Like last year this is not a timed event or a race. This year the start/finish will be at the lower parking area at Penquis Valley Schools on West Main Street. Registration/Check in starts at 9:00 am. and the event kicks off at 10:00 am. The number of participants will be capped at 300 this year. Registration is $20.00 per person and includes a gift bag with a Color Milo T-shirt, silicone wristband, neon sunglasses, and an individual size packet of color. All participants will receive a gift bag.
There will be four color stations - one at about each half mile of the route. The final color station will be at the finish line. The color used is biodegradable but meant to stain so, please, wear clothing that you don't mind being stained. Color Milo is a rain or shine event; however, if the weather is too bad we reserve the right to cancel the event in the interest of participates' safety. We have openings for a few volunteers for this event so if you'd like to volunteer please contact Tammy at 943-6168.
Registration/entry forms and waivers are available in the lobby of the Milo Town Hall. You can also print them from the Color Milo event page on www.trcmaine.org or our Facebook event page, Color Milo 2015. All participants and volunteers must complete an entry form and sign the event waiver. The address for returning forms is on the entry/registration forms. You can register the day of the event at Color Milo, but it will be first come-first served for T-shirt sizes. Once we have reached 300 registered participants, registration will be closed.
The Photo Station will be set up again this year so come in your craziest outfits, fun hats, colored socks, tutus, etc. Make sure to take some before and after pics in front of the Color Milo banner !
We know throwing color is fun and we want to accommodate participants so we will have individual size packets of color for sale this year. Prices will be $3:00 each or 4 for $10.00. Color Milo 2015 will also have a Color Zone and ask that throwing of color before or after the walk be done in the Color Zone. This will help keep the color fun away from food and registration tables.
Breakfast is sponsored by Dunkin Donuts. They will provide munchkins, coffee and hot chocolate. We will have water at the rest stop (half way point in the route). The rest stop sponsor is Maine Savings. There will be light refreshments after the event: popcorn, cupcakes, bananas, granola bars, water, and soda. Other sponsors of Color Milo are: Dragonz Den Armory, Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Shaw's, Sam's Club, Walmart, Ready Set Grow Preschool and Childcare, Milo Fire Department, Three Rivers Kiwanis, A.E. Robinson, Carey's Cash Fuel, Maine Highlands FCU, Rowell's Garage, Pleasant River Lumber, Lumbra Hardwoods, Dave's World, US Cellular, and Earl Gerrish and Sons,
Once all participates have finished Color Milo 2015, we will gather in the Color Zone in a big group to release the color cannons for the grand finale of Milo's most colorful and fun event !!!
