Please note that while our plan is to conduct the Trick or Trot 5K in person, we are subject to the direction and authority of all State and local health authorities. Should the Federal Government, the State of Connecticut, the City of Milford, or other health authorities issue any directive that such activities like the Trick or Trot cannot or should not move forward in person, the Trick or Trot reserves the right to alter the event to virtual with or without notice.  Should the Trick or Trot alter to a virtual event, no refunds shall be provided to any runners or participants
