Monster Mile Back-Off

Back this year: A fall-inspired bake-off! We’re reserving 20 spots for home bakers to enter their seasonal treat for judging by our Mile participants. Contact us at news@miltonindependent.com today to reserve your spot. Read the rules below.

Bake-Off Official Rules and Guidelines 

1. Limit 20 participants. Participants must confirm entry in the bake-off by emailing news@miltonindependent.com with their name and recipe; they will be notified of participation status with receipt.

2. Participants should provide samples (roughly 2×2 in) of their baked goods – e.g. two dozen cookies/cupcakes/brownies cut into quarters – to allow about 100 people to sample. For larger items, like a cake or pie, one is sufficient, to be cut into samples (use your judgement).

3. Samples must be pre-portioned. We will not provide knives or serving apparatus.

4. Participants will not be charged an entrance fee, but additional family mebers/friends – including those who wish to participate in the Mile – must register in advance and pay a fee.

5. Participants must be in charge of their own clean up after the event.

Bake-Off Logistics

  • Plan to arrive at 1:45pm with your baked good to check in and set-up. Event attendees will begin arriving at 2pm to start sampling food before the run begins at 2:30pm.
  • Upon arrival please check in with an event volunteer at the registration desk. You will be assigned a table space and a number with a corresponding jar for voting.
  • Each Monster Mile attendee will receive one token upon arrival. Throughout the afternoon, they can sample baked goods and will be instructed to vote for their favorite treat using their tokens in the corresponding jar.
  • First, second and third place winners who receive the most tokens in their jars will be awarded prizes at the events conclusion.
