Thank you to every individual walker, runner, donor, business sponsor, volunteer who came out today to show support for those affected by the recent tragedy at the Boston Marathon. Hundreds from across the Mount Washington Valley and beyond came out and shared their kindness, compassion and generosity to make it a phenomenal event. We had the opportunity to come together, mourn together and then stand together to help others in need. We raised about $6,200.00 that will go directly to The One Fund in Boston. The Milers feel fortunate to live in such a great community! click here for photos of the event. Couldn’t make it? Send a donation to www.onefundboston.org
Thank you to the wonderful support we have had from local and New England area businesses for donating food and raffle prizes to this event. Here is a timeline as well some final details:
This event is a free and is open to anyone. It will not be timed, it’s an opportunity to gather to show people in Boston our support and also raise money for One Fund Boston.
We will be having a raffle for a variety of incredible prizes (over 20 of them) and the more money you donate, the more raffle tickets you will get to win prizes.
We will accept both cash and checks for donations. If you are writing checks ahead of time, make them out to One Fund Boston, Inc.
There will be food at the event that was also generously donated by Valley businesses. We will be accepting cash donations for the food as well.
All proceeds from this event will go to One Fund Boston. Through the generosity of Valley businesses and the Hoyt Family at King Pine, this event is costing us nothing to hold, which is why we can donate 100% of your funds.

FREE EVENT. DONATIONS WELCOME. ALL PROCEEDS TO GO TO THE ONE FUND BOSTON.
Purity Spring Resort and the White Mountain Milers are organizing a fun run/walk in honor of the victims of the bombings at the Boston Marathon. Here are the details:
The event will be at 10 AM on April 27th at King Pine and is open to anyone. It will be free and we will accept donations for the One Fund Boston . Registration will begin at 9AM.
This will be a run or a walk, whichever you prefer and will not be timed. This is about celebrating the community of New England and showing support to the people of Boston. All of us in some way are touched by tragedies like this and certainly as runners, we all know someone who has participated in the ultimate of marathons: The Boston Marathon.
The event will consist of approximately a 2.62 kilometer route that starts at Milt’s Place at King Pine Ski Area. For anyone who wishes to run further after the commemorative run, it is a beautiful area with bountiful trails and country roads and we encourage you to take in the beauty.
For parking, we recommend parking at Milt’s Place or across the street from the main lodge at King Pine. Registration will begin at 9 AM (only for everyone to sign a waiver, there is no cost for the event) with the event taking place at 10. We appreciate the willingness of The Hoyts, Laurie Campbell and King Pine Ski Area for being open to us having this event on such short notice.
We encourage you to wear something that supports the city of Boston- a marathon shirt, a Redsox, Patriots or Bruins shirt or something similar.
Please tell your friends, whether they be runners or just proud residents of New England. This event is welcome to all. This will be a celebration of all that is good in our community so that we may send good vibes to Boston!!
There will be water available at the event and possibly some post-event refreshments. A special thanks to Dave Sartory for providing us with a Sound System and lots of Boston-based music.
NOTES ON USE OF FACILITIES: The main lodge at King Pine is being used for another event that day. The facilities at Milt’s Place will be available for us for registration, bathrooms, etc.
RAFFLE PRIZES AND DONATIONS: We will be doing a raffle drawing at the race, with some amazing prices- nature photography prints, running jackets, massage certificates and much more. We are already thankful for the donations for raffle prizes and have enough of them at this point. We are looking for some food donations for post-run refreshments. All proceeds from the event will go to charity. If you are interested in donating food, contact Paul Kirsch at email@example.com or at 603-398-1852.
VOLUNTEERS: We do need a few volunteers to assist with the event. If you would be willing to help out, please contact Paul Kirsch at firstname.lastname@example.org or 603-398-1852.
DIRECTIONS: To get to King Pine from Conway, take Route 153 approximately 9.5 miles from the lights in Conway. Milt’s Place is the very first building on your right at the ski area before the main parking lot.
