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.

2. A great tradition in Madison that got better with the addition of wave starts. It used to be a two mile walk followed by a three mile run after you passed all the people that started way ahead of their actual mile pace. One can actually run the entire race now. A little pricey for just a tshirt but I guess you do get beer at the end and the money goes to a good cause. THE ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT. Gotta support those non rev sports.

A bunch of crazies jumping into Lake Monona for the Polar Plunge

The Polar Plunge is an event for the benefit of the Special Olympics during which participants jump into a swimming hole in Lake Monona. Since the event takes place in late February (February 20th, 2010 at Olin Park), the lake is always frozen solid. Only the bravest (craziest) of souls dare jump. For many, sponsoring a "plunger" is the best way to participate in this very Wisconsinesque activity.

At In-N-Out burger, there are a couple of things that customers can say when they order to get their food cooked a certain way, even though it is not on any menu. "Protein style" means that your burger is wrapped in lettuce rather than a bun.
