Designed in honor of Kyle Milliken, The Husky Run & Ruck 10K is a scenic rolling course that offers a taste of everything that the Mansfield-Storrs area has to offer. The course sets off in the shadow of Gampel Pavilion, with the first two miles looping through the heart of the UCONN Storrs campus. It then heads out on the infamous Bonemill Loop, before returning along the Celeron Trail and finishing with another loop through campus. The course will pass by the campus’ Veterans Memorial twice along the route.
