Get ready for the 29th annual Madison Marathon presented by SSM Health in downtown Madison, Wisconsin on Sunday, November 12, 2023. It's going to be an incredible day of running, and we want you to be a part of it! Starting and ending on the iconic Capitol Square, this race is not to be missed. And as a runner, you'll enjoy some amazing perks! We're talking FREE race photos courtesy of the Madison Marathon presented by SSM Health, a complimentary Michelob Ultra beer (for those 21+), and some delicious post-race food to refuel your body. But that's not all. You'll also receive a cool long-sleeved shirt designed specifically for your gender, an awesome finisher medal that's the first of a four-year series, and the support of pace groups for all speeds. This event is professionally timed and managed, so you can trust that everything will run smoothly. And here's something exciting: there's a $$$ prize purse $$$ for the 1st-3rd place overall winners (male/female) of both the Madison Marathon and Half Marathon. So if you're a competitive runner, this is your chance to seize the opportunity and claim your share of the glory! Before the big day, make sure to attend the Expo & Packet Pickup at the Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center. Located at One John Nolen Drive in Madison, WI, this is where you can collect all your race essentials. The Expo & Packet Pickup will take place on Friday, November 10th from 3-7pm and Saturday, November 11th from 10am-4pm. Just remember, Packet Pickup closes at 4pm on Saturday, so be sure to get there in time! One important note: there is no packet pickup on Sunday unless you've pre-purchased the Race Day Packet Pickup option. We want to make sure you're well-prepared for the race, so please plan accordingly and don't forget to pick up your packet before race day.
