Milkshake Mile – Individual Mail-in Registration Form


Race day registration begins at 7:00am on Saturday, June 20th at HACC (near the starting line). All race participants are encouraged to be at HACC no later than 8:30am, due to the high volume of walk-ups and packet pickups. Remember, the race starts promptly at 9:00am.

Please note that the Milkshake Mile is a fun run/walk and is not an officially chip timed event (just like the fun run/walk heat for the Harrisburg Mile).

All registrants in the Milkshake Mile will still receive a shirt, milkshake, and all the same swag that the 10k registrants receive.

There will be a timing clock at the finish line of the Milkshake Mile so registrations can see their time unofficially.
