This is our anticipated route. The City of Pierre has construction planned along parts the pathway, which is slated to be completed before August 2nd. In the event that construction becomes delayed, there may be minor changes to the route.

•Participants need to be in the starting chute area by 6:45 a.m. Run will start promptly at 7:00 a.m.

• Water and fruit will be available pre-race at the starting line, along with filled doughnut holes from the one-and-only Doughnut Shop in Pierre -- who doesn’t like a yummy doughnut before a run?! 

• Help us avoid runner congestion during the first part of the race: Line up in the starting area by approximate pace group. Faster runners at the front, slower runners in the middle, and walkers to the back. 

• The course is mostly flat and out-and-back, starting with a short loop at LaFramboise Island and turning around at Farm Island. The course is paved and hard-packed trails.
