SYTTENDE MAI RUN/WALK
Athletic competitions are a Syttende Mai tradition. 2020 marks the 48th 20-Mile 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.
