Fun Fact: “The MadCity Ultras are unique in that alongside the world-class 100K and 50K runners, 50K relay teams are competing on the same course and adding excitement and energy to the event. Most of the relay teams are comprised of Madison-area runners carrying a relay baton and wearing an ankle chip which must both be transitioned to the next runner at the start/finish. Winning teams are awarded based on the sum-of-the-ages of their team members and the awards consist of beer for all of the over-21 winning teams.”
