A word from the Race Director: "There are a lot of marathons out there claiming to be the 'most scenic,' and all of them have legitimate reasons for such a claim. None of them, however, are run through the sacred land of the Lakota Sioux and finish in a town that is an Historic Landmark…that’s right, the entire town of Deadwood, South Dakota is part of our authentic American heritage...All race directors think they have something special to offer you, and I am no different. COME RUN WITH US… MAKE A LIFELONG MEMORY!" – Jerry Dunn

The Marathon is a point to point course, beginning in the old mining town of Rochford; home of the MoonShine Gulch Saloon, the Mall of America, and the University of Rochford. After a quick run through town, you find yourself on the George Mickelson Trail and on your way to Deadwood. The Half Marathon starts on the trail, 13.1 miles from Rochford. The Finish Line for both events is the Deadwood Trailhead. Complete course description can be found on the Course Information page. Bus transportation from Deadwood is provided and strongly recommended to the start line of both events. Start time for both events is 8 AM.
