For the 49th time, New Milford will play host to an eight-mile road race Saturday.

The race, which will begin and end on the town green, will begin at 8:30 a.m.

Between 500 and 700 people will likely run, said Lauren Ellard, New Milord’s Parks and Recreation Department’s road race coordinator. There will also be a 5K available for runners less interested in long hauls, she said.

It costs $25 to register for the race. Online registration closes Wednesday, but you can also register the day of the race if you arrive early.
