New Expo & Packet Pick-Up Location in 2017!

Every year, we ask you to complete a short, post-race survey. Why? The reason is simple. Because your feedback is invaluable to us as we look to improve your Madison Mini-Marathon race experience year after year. You told us that our Expo and Packet Pick-Up location in the past has been less than ideal. A headache, really. Well, we listened and are proud to announce that we have a new Madison Mini-Marathon Expo and Packet Pick-Up location in 2017: Alliant Energy Center.

2017 Madison Mini-Marathon Expo and Packet Pick-Up

Alliant Energy Center, Hall C
1919 Alliant Energy Center Way, Madison WI 53717

Friday, August 18: 11:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.
