We run for CORNDOGS!!!


It's true, we have the inaugural Ferris Wheel VIRTUAL 5k!
Run or walk the 5k at your convenience and on the honor system sometime before the FAIR. Registered participants will get the VIP Ferris Wheel 5k FINISH LINE at the Fair and LOADS of fun amenities!

What does VIRTUAL mean?

Virtual means the race is ran on your time and at your location which can happen virtually anywhere! This also means there is not an officially marked or scheduled 5k course and time. HOWEVER, we have a VERY REAL finish line arch and VIP treatment on September 6th at the Madera Fair for those paid participants who deserve some celebratin' and have earned that corndog! Kids and kids at heart are ALL encouraged to participate!
