Race Info:

Join us for this "virtual-ish 5/10k" supporting the Downtown Rescue Mission's Thanksgiving Dinner. This month we are running the Indian Creek Greenway, you will have 10 days to run/walk a 5k and/or 10k at this venue (Virtual-ish means everyone runs the same course, just not at the same time, due to Covid-19 restrictions). We are using the honor system for results, so once you complete your run, you'll record your own time to Runsignup.com.  Click here to see how to submit your results.  You can even upload your GPS data, click here to find out how. We will finalize the results, the last Sunday after noon.

Chick-fil-A Madison is donating shirts, food and medals for this race! There are not one, but 2 courses, a greenway 5k (map) and a 10k (map). You can do one or both of the events. You can even do them multiple times! Each participant gets a shirt, race bib and some yummy food from Chick-fil-A; it's free to register; we do ask that you make a donation that will go to the Downtown Rescue Mission. We will email you the packet pickup details.

We Run Race Photos will be at the Creekwood Park and on the course both Saturdays 7-9am, cheering you on and taking photos of those who choose to run during that time.  Make sure you wear your shirt, so we know who is with the event. While there, we ask everyone to follow state COVID-19 guidelines for social distancing, including wearing a mask, if you can't maintain 6 feet separation.  We are setting up this virtual event to keep everyone safe!  

While is a no-frills event  (no aid stations and no official timing), you do get a shirt and other swag, thanks to Chick-fil-A and our other sponsors.  This is meant to be a fun event, no pressure!  And the best part?  This is a FREE event.  We are merely asking for a donation for each race you sign up for.  All proceeds will go to the Downtown Rescue Mission.

Run your 5k/10k anytime between Friday Oct 23rd and Sunday Nov 1st.
