September 13, 2010 MILTON - Applications and sponsorship packets for the 2nd Annual Milton Mayor's Run, to be held 8 a.m. Oct. 16 at the Kohl's on Ga. 9, are now available at the City of Milton's Web site,

This year's Milton Mayor's Run will begin and end at the Kohl's in the Deerfield Place shopping center at the corner of Ga. 9 and Deerfield Parkway, said Cyndee Bonacci, Milton's Director of Parks and Recreation. It includes a 5K race and 1K fun run.

Cost for participation is $20 if received before Oct. 11 and $25 after. That fee includes a quality, moisture-wicking T-shirt with the logo displayed below and plenty of food and fluids after the race.

Sponsorship levels include packages from $250 to $5,000 for title sponsors.

All funds raised by this event will directly benefit the Milton Parks and Recreation Department and its efforts to provide citizens with access to greenspaces, parks, trails, facilities and recreation programs and activities.

The 5K race will circle Deerfield Parkway, meaning it will be flat and fast.

Awards will go to the 5K Male and Female Open and Masters and to the top three finishers in the various age groups.

"The race will be a Peachtree qualifier, and the flat course means runners could post a very good time," said Bonacci. "We know there are a good number of avid runners in North Fulton, and we hope they will join us for this great community event."
