The Midway Madness 5k is the newest part of the Maury County Fair week (August 19 - August 24, 2014) and will be held on August 23, 2014. This is a unique race for a couple of reasons: 1) it's held entirely within Maury County Park and 2) the start and finish will be in the Midway area of the Fairgrounds!

This race is great for all ages and abilities, with a special "Midway Trot" free for families to be held at 10:00am just within the Midway area.
The 5k course is a mixture of surfaces, but majority will be paved trails with some gentle hills. Post-race activities include music, great food and special Midway photo opportunities!
