2) Women's and Men's 5K Walk - 8:45 a.m.
Immediately following the 5K Run, we will also offer a 5K Walk. Perfect for our noncompetitive joggers and/or walkers who wish to obtain their own race time from the Race clock which runs continuously throughout the event. No awards are given for this event.
3) 1 Mile Fun Course - 9:15 a.m.
Participants with baby strollers/joggers may prefer the 1 Mile Fun Course rather than our longer 5K walk. There will be a Race clock running throughout the event but no awards are given.
4) "Sleep In for the Cure®"
Can't make it to this year's Race? Work nights? Or just want to sleep in on Saturday morning? You can still participate by signing up for "Sleep In for the Cure®" and receive your t-shirt by mail after the Race.
Race day safety:
Safety is our first priority. Please pin your bib number on the front of your t-shirt. For the safety of all participants, rollerblades and pets are discouraged from participating in this event. Thank you for your cooperation.
This event will occur rain or shine. We reserve the right to cancel in extreme circumstances. In that event, there will be no refund, rather your entry fee will be used as a donation to the Susan G. Komen Madison Race for the Cure.
