2022 Kyle Milliken Memorial Run Race Description

The Kyle Milliken Memorial Run is an annual 5-mile run held on the UCONN Campus in Storrs.  This run honors Navy Special Warfare Operator Senior Chief Petty Officer (SEAL) Kyle Jeffrey Milliken who was killed in action serving his country on May 5, 2017 in East Africa.  Milliken was a highly decorated combat veteran with numerous awards and 10 deployments.  He was an amazing father, husband, son, brother and friend, whose passion for life was contagious.  His sharp wit and magnetic personality made lasting impressions on everyone he met.  Kyle was highly competitive in all aspect of his life.  He displayed incredible talent as a dedicated warrior, yet he stayed grounded through his faith, family and teammates.  Kyle’s captivating presence and colorful storytelling regularly had an entire room in hysterics.  He was a cornerstone of his family, friends and team.  In 1998 Kyle walked onto UCONN’s Track and Field Team where he made every single one of his teammates a better runner, athlete and person with his leadership, dedication and unwavering commitment and drive.  The very foundation for his success as a SEAL and in life.  This race supports the Kyle Milliken Fund which proved support through scholarship and capital projects for the UCONN Track and Field Programs.


In lieu of a registration fee, we hope that you will consider making a gift this year to the Kyle Milliken Memorial Fund, established through the UCONN Foundation. Registration remains free for the run this year, as we want as many people as possible to participate and learn more about who Kyle was.

This fund, thanks to all of the generous donors over the past couple years, has been formally endowed and now exists in perpetuity at UConn with the continuing purpose of providing scholarships to Men’s and Women’s Track and Field athletes, capital projects, and/or programmatic elements. With your past and future support, Kyle’s legacy will continue to be cemented at UConn and with the Track and Field programs.
