This Run kicks off the Rhythm & Booms Fireworks Celebration, a one-day event that draws nearly 250,000 spectators to Warner Park each year. The Run to the Rhythm 5K Run starts and ends in Warner Park on the beautiful Northside of Madison, WI. The course is a "loop" course that starts in Warner Park and continues around the park, through the surrounding neighborhoods and along the shores of Lake Mendota before it loops back towards the finish line. This scenic course features views of Lake Mendota, tree-canopied streets and easy hills that any runner will appreciate. Spectators will cheer you on as you pass through the neighborhoods and along the lake shore.
