Calling all IRONKIDS! The Madison Area Sports Commission is hosting the IRONKIDS Fun Run on Saturday, September 10th 2022 at 5pm. The annual kids race takes place in downtown Madison around the Capitol Square during the IRONMAN® Wisconsin event weekend! It’s such an incredible way to subject your kids to the unique atmosphere of IRONMAN Wisconsin by allowing them to experience the thrill of competition for themselves while enjoying the city we live in and promoting healthy living. Plus,they will feel the pride of calling themselves an IRONKID and can enjoy a post-race celebration in the heart of IRONMAN Village. 

Race Details

Distances: Participants may choose from the following distances:

  • Toddler Dot Trot (ages 1 – 3) 
  • 0.5 miles (1 loop around the Capitol Square; ages 3 – 8)
  • 1 mile (2 loops around the Capitol Square; ages 5 – 17)

The race begins at 5pm and stretches will begin 15 minutes prior to each race.

The IRONKIDS Fun Run is geared towards kids ages 1-17. Participants can choose their distance — choices are the Toddler Dot Trot; the .5 mile, which is 1 loop of the Capitol Square; and 1 mile – which is 2 loops of the Capitol Square. The run begins and ends on the 100 block of Martin Luther King Blvd.

I think we can agree that there is always something special about being in downtown Madison with our kids – and the Capitol Square is iconic to our city. The atmosphere of this fun run is definitely one of a kind!

You can register here for $20. 

This is one of our favorite annual events for kids in the Madison area and we are looking forward to participating this fall! Be sure to also watch the IRONMAN event the next day in our city!
