Creating healthier families one individual at a time through faith, fellowship, and fitness.

A message to our participants

We made it! We made it! We made it! What a year 2020 has been. We at the Madison Gospel 5K Foundation recognize that we are living in unprecedented times. The introduction of COVID-19 has posed a threat to the United States and the world. We at the Madison Gospel 5K Foundation recognize that this present situation has resulted in a feeling of helplessness and hopelessness in our communities. As the city of Madison continues to figure out ways to move forward in our "new normal" we want you to know that we are working extremely hard to continue to provide resources, support and assistance to Madison residents, in particular Madison residents of color, especially those most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are proud to say that we were the FIRST race to take place during the COVID-19 pandemic in Madison, WI. We worked very closely with the City of Madison Parks to ensure the success of our race. We were able to come up with a secure safety plan and were successfully able to keep everyone safe and socially distant. We were able to simultaneously host both an in-person and virtual race. There were no reported COVID-19 cases reported from the Public Health of Madison & Dane County regarding any positive cases nor near exposures resulting from the race. So, we at MG5K realized that with strategic planning, community events can be held in a safe manner.

So, with what we were able to accomplish in 2020 and with careful consideration, we at the Madison Gospel 5K Foundation would like to inform you that on Saturday July 17, 2021 we will be hosting our 3rd Annual Madison Gospel 5K "Socially Distanced" Run/Walk. This event will be both an in-person and virtual event. Our theme for this year's event is "Stand Boldly. Walk Proudly. Run Swiftly."

Participants will receive some amazing swag, a short-sleeve t-shirt that will be available ONLY when registered by July 1st and an awesome finisher medal. We have a limited supply.

Do not forget to sign up and register

Thank you and see you all on race day!!!!!
