Excited is a understatement to describe how I’m feeling about the Madison Mini Marathon on August 22, 2020!!!! It’s always fun to experience new races but it is even more exciting when these races take you to places you have never been before! I have never been to the great state of Wisconsin my fastest best running friend is from there so of course this race had to be on my running bucket list!!!

This race offers all of the top notch amenities:  
– a scenic course featuring some of Madison’s most iconic landmarks
– access to Best 14th Mile Post-Race Party on Memorial Union Terrace Overlooking the Lake
– complimentary Post-Race Beer (21+)
– Real-Time Athlete Tracking App
– collectible bottle opener-finisher medal (half marathon finishers)
– awesome blingtastic medal (5K finishers)
– commemorative super soft tri-blend race shirt
– motivation from energetic Cheer Challenge stations along the half marathon course

The 12th Annual Madison Mini Half Marathon, 5K and Kids’ Run benefits Girls on the Run of South Central Wisconsin. Girls on the Run is a positive youth development program that is activity based. It is designed to enhance girls’ social, psychological and physical skills and behaviors to successfully navigate life experiences. Their mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. 

In South Central Wisconsin Girls on the Run has served over 14,000 girls since their inaugural team of 13 girls in 2005. In 2019, 1,800 girls were served and awarded over $49,000 in scholarship funds to 400 families with financial need. No girl was turned away for an inability to pay.
