As always, 100% of proceeds from the event are donated to charities.

This year the Run of the Mill 5K will support those impacted at the Boston Marathon, local cancer charities and local high school athletic programs. 

The Run of the Mill 5K race/walk is the longest-standing event in Mill Creek. This year will be the 28th annual Run of the Mill 5K.

Beginning in 2006 Columbia Funding Mortgage in Mill Creek has organized the Run of the Mill 5K, and has also been the title sponsor. In that time, the Run of the Mill 5K has grown from a local event to one of the premier 5K races in Western Washington.

The course records are held by Jordan McNamara with a time of 14:13 (male division) in 2012 and Ruth Perkins with a time of 17:06 (female division) in 2011.
