Strides for Africa is a fun event for all ages to participate. We are excited to announce that we (Strides for Africa and Africa Fest) are moving to Madison Central Park as we join Madison Central Park Sessions. There are many options available to participants including a 5K run, 5K walk, team relay, 2 mile fun walk, and a kids fun run. We are adding a new team relay event that will have demonstrate the rigors of water gathering in rural Africa. The event takes place at Central Park the 3rd Saturday in August and features a great course through along the Yahara River, through beautiful Tenney Park, and along Lake Mendota. In addition the event features the rhythmic sounds of Afican music as you come to the finish line.
