This page is intended to answer questions about the MadCity Race and our ongoing work to provide a safe and successful event in 2021.
What is the current situation with outdoor events in Madison, Wisconsin?
The City of Madison and Dane County continue to relax the restrictions for outdoor events. In person races are beginning such as the Lake Monona 20K in April. Based on the projections for vaccinations and health recommendations we are confident that the September 25 race date will not change.
Will the race events change in 2021?
Due to a decision by the USATF to designate a different race as the 100K National Championship for 2021, MadCity events will be the 50K Solo and 50K Relay. Runners and teams which previously registered for these events are already confirmed for the September 25 race.
What should I do if I have registered for the 100K?
The Local Organizing Committee will be contacting our 100K registrants for their options to defer to 2022, switch to the 50K or arrange a refund. Note that refunds are only available to 100K registrants due to the decision by the USATF.
If I've already registered for the 50K Solo Race but can't compete can I transfer my registration to another runner?
Yes! Registrants can use our Facebook event page to offer their registration to another runner. The financial transaction is between you and the person you're transferring to. Once you've agreed to transfer your registration, let us know and we'll arrange for the new runner to register on our MadCity registration site with a waived registration fee. This allows us to gather the necessary information from the new registrant - name, age, address, USATF number where applicable, waiver, etc.
Our 50K Relay Team needs to change one or more members - how can we do that?
The Team Captain can send an email to with your team name and information about the changes and we'll work with you to update the members. Remember that each Team member needs register with the Team so that they sign the waiver and enter their information so we can't just change a name!
