*NEW IN 2019: Volunteer themes!

This year, we’re having some fun with the Run Madtown Twilight 5K/10K and the Half Marathon! We’ve picked a Glow theme for the Twilight races and a America theme for the Half Marathon! We want YOU as a volunteer to follow the theme! This can include wearing a fun outfit, noise makers, making signs and bringing the theme to life out on the race course and on site.


Madison Festivals Inc., enriches our community by bringing together people, businesses and charities.

Volunteers are a vital part of any Madison Festivals event. We couldn’t put on this event without all of our volunteers. We provide financial opportunities to help those in the community who support our events. Qualified organizations include federal, state and local governments (including school districts) and 501(c)(3) organizations organized and operated only for charitable, religious, educational, scientific, or literary purposes, or for the prevention of cruelty to children or animals.

How does it work? Volunteers check in/out at the volunteer tent for their shift. We tally the hours at the end of the event and send the organization you volunteered on behalf of one check. You will receive an hourly rate for your shift or a predetermined flat rate if working a water station.
