2019 Syttende Mai Classic Run/Walk
May 18 @ 7:30 am - 12:00 pm
Athletic competitions are a Syttende Mai tradition. This year’s 20-Mile run is the 46th annual race from the state’s capitol building in Madison to Mandt Park in Stoughton, and it is among the first footraces ever held in Wisconsin. The festival’s Viking Games Competition has become a United States Strongman sanctioned event and draws competitors and fans from across the country. There is an athletic event for everyone, whether you run or walk in the 2-Mile Lil’ Run, compete in the Canoe Race down the Yahara River, or cheer on your favorite Viking from the sidelines.
