1. The annual Crazylegs Classic is an 8k (roughly 5 mile) run or a 2 mile walk. It starts on the Capitol Square and end on the field at Camp Randall Stadium. It started in 1982 and has grown to a race of almost 15,000 by 2007. The race has received national recognition as America's Best 100 Events in Runner's World Magazine. I can personally attest that this is a very fun event. They even have beer for you after you run! 2008 Update: The race this year was quite cold. The temp was in the forties but the 30mph wind made it seem colder. However, the cold didn't seem to hurt the attendance as it was a new record at over 17,000.
