Run of the Mill “Frequently Asked Questions”
What is the Run of the Mill?
The Run of the Mill is a 5k (3.1 mile) race in Mill Creek Washington. It is the longest standing annual event in Mill Creek. Since 2006, the race has been a fundraising event to benefit those fighting cancer. The ROTM is a very fun event – not only because the race itself has become a very respected and competitive 5k, but also because before and after the race, the event is a fun, community event with booths, prize give-aways, music, cash awards and great community spirit.
• The Run of the Mill raises money for cancer patients who are undergoing treatment as well as other local charities. A secondary focus is providing financial support to youth sports, especially high school running programs. The goal is $50,000 this year.

Are baby joggers and strollers allowed?
Yes, they will be allowed, but they must start in the rear in their assigned area. This is a highly competitive race with many elite local and regional athletes, and it is a very fast start. For everyone’s safety, baby joggers and strollers will be placed safely back in the start line-up, NO EXCEPTIONS.
What about inline skate, rollerblades, bikes, skateboards, etc?
Sorry not allowed, NO EXCEPTIONS
Are dogs allowed?
The Run of the Mill attracts a very large crowd, where many dogs would be uncomfortable and possibly unpredictable, and therefore we ask you not to bring any pets unless you and they are experienced in such situations. For wise and responsible pet-owners, well-behaved dogs and their courteous and well-behaved owners are welcome. If your pet acts out or causes a problem you will be held responsible for any damage to persons or property during the event. Well behaved dogs may start in the last group and course officials reserve the right to pull them from the course if it is deemed necessary.
Can I make additional donations to the charity?
YES!! Additional donations are welcome and needed to help us reach our goal of raising $50,000. You can add an additional donation when you register online, and we will set up a DONATION link separate from registration for those who want to donate without registering.
Can I Volunteer?
Yes! Please use the “Contact Us” page to send a message to our volunteer coordinator.
Why are T-shirts sold separately?
Our t-shirts are very cool, and have been very popular in the past. But there are 2 main reasons we sell them separately.
1. No matter how cool they are, some folks just don’t wear t-shirts, so why should they have to pay $15 more for their registration if they don’t want one? It’s a matter of choice.
2. It is also a matter of financial responsibility. Since all race proceeds go to charity, the only way to avoid the cost of printing unwanted and un-needed costs is to take pre-orders. We have very few left-over shirts, and only spend money on the shirts people want to buy, so that means more money goes to charity.
Who puts this race on?
Columbia Funding Mortgage is proud to present the Run of the Mill 5k. We thank all our sponsors for their generous support, without which we would not be able to donate such a high percentage of the race entry fees to charity. So please visit our sponsor’s websites (linked from their logos on this website) and their sponsor booths on race day. Let them know you appreciate their support of this event, and do business with them whenever possible. We believe in supporting businesses that give back to the community, like our sponsors do.
