Race week is here! Some important things to know:
  • Packet pickup is Friday Sept 24 from 3-6PM at the Vilas Shelter on Wingra Park Drive.
  • Only Relay Team Captains and 50K Solo runners need to pick up packets.
  • Your Relay Team members need to be sure to complete their own individual registration and enter their age and sign the waiver. Contact madcity50k@gmail.com if you have questions about this.
  • We'll have truffles from Swiss Colony for all runners. It could be a bit warmer in Sept than our traditional race date in April so maybe bring a cooler in your car!
  • We still need volunteers. Go here to check out the openings.
  • Both races start at 8AM near the Vilas Park Shelter. All 50K Solo runners and the first member of your Relay Team need to start at this time.
  • Solo runners will have a chip in their bib, while Relay runners will have an ankle chip that must be transferred to each successive runner before embarking on their loop. Chips must be on the ankle to be correctly ready by the timing mat. Relay runners will also have a relay baton. Each Relay team will have a set of five identical bib numbers.
  • There will be designated "boxes" for Relay teams to transition. Be sure to use these boxes for your chip and baton handoff.
