Mad Dash 5 k

The Madison Mad Dash 5k & 2.5k Walk/Run is a major fundraiser for the PTO. The Mad Dash is the second Sunday in June at Capitol Lake (Heritage Park) – for 2023 that’s Sunday, June 11! This is a fast, flat course, perfect for beginning runners and a chance for experienced runners to set a personal record! The course is ADA-accessible, so the event is open to all abilities and fitness levels.

8:30 am – 2.5k kids run (1 lap around the lake)
9:00 am – 5k run (2 laps around the lake)

ALL Madison students will get free registration, including a shirt and medal in 2023, thanks to the Capital City Marathon Endowment Fund Grants program at the Community Foundation of South Puget Sound.
