About This Activity

Join us for the 2014 Milton Cross Country Festival 5K Race on the official Milton High School Cross Country Course. The course is set entirely within the woods and school grounds of Milton High School and has been described as one of the most natural and interesting High School Cross Country courses in the State of Georgia.

Proceeds from the race will go towards finding a cure for Brain Cancer in honor of Gary Gelb, a Milton XC Parent and Volunteer who recently lost his battle with the disease. The Milton XC Team has adopted this cause this season and will be collecting monies throughout the Festival weekend and the 2014 XC Season to support this great cause.
