_ The 2022 Milford Turkey Trot:
Join us for the 2nd annual Milford Turkey Trot at 9:00 AM Thanksgiving morning along Gulf Street, Buckingham Ave and New Haven Ave. All are welcome so please spread the word and make this an event to remember.
100% of the proceeds from the event will go directly to local Milford, CT charities: The Calf Pen Meadow PTA (https://sites.google.com/milforded.org/calf-pen/home), Purple Pantry Boxes (https://purplepantryboxes.com/) and Beth-El Center (http://www.bethelmilford.org/)
Feel free to run/walk alone, with your kids, with strollers, or even with your pets on leashes as all routes are on Milford sidewalks. No roads will be closed for this event, all street laws must be followed by participants at all times. It is not a race, it is a fun run/walk charity event, be safe at all times.
This casual 3+ mile run/walk starting at James Park (Gulf Street and New Haven Avenue) starts out heading South past Gulf Beach, makes the first turn next to Calf Pen Meadow heading Northwest on Buckingham Avenue and the last turn near Jimmy's Apizza heading West on New Haven Avenue creating a full loop back to James Park. If 3 miles is too far for you or your little ones, two shorter out and back options will be clearly marked heading the same direction to Gulf Beach. One is 1 mile total and the second going all the way to Gulf Beach is exactly 2 miles. Both have sidewalks the entire way making it a wonderful run/walk for any age and ability.
