Chamber Color Run in downtown Madison still on for Saturday, health fair postponed
MADISON – The first ever Madison Chamber Color Run and Helath Fair was planned to be held tomorrow at Madison City Stadium, but weather is causing an adjustment to those plans.
Madison Chamber of Commerce Events and Marketing Coordinator Felecia Rodgers said the heath fair portion of the event has been cancelled, but so far the race is still on.
“We do plan to reschedule the health fair to another date,” Rodgers said. “We are planning to move forward with the race. However, if the weather does not permit we will cancel the race by 5 a.m on Saturday, March 27.”
Rodgers said the cancellation will be on all the Chamber’s social media sites and an email will be sent to all participates.
