Preparations underway for Sioux Falls Marathon

The Sioux Falls Marathon returns to the streets of Sioux Falls on Sunday, September 8, 2019. Approximately 3,000 athletes from around the regional and the country are expected to run courses ranging from 5K to 26.2 miles.

The marathon is powered by the Sioux Falls Sports Authority and Sanford Health. Race day features distances for all levels of runners, including a full marathon, half marathon, 10k and the Children's Miracle Network 5k. A portion of the event proceeds are donated to the Children's Miracle Network.

"We are so thankful to be partnered with Sanford Health and the Children's Miracle Network for this great event," said Austin Bramley, project director for the Sioux Falls Sports Authority. "Each entity does so much good in our community and it's truly a pleasure for us to give back to them."

For the first time, the Sioux Falls Marathon Expo will take place at the Sanford Pentagon. The Expo will be held on Saturday, Sept. 7 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Participants are invited to walk through the vendor booths, pick up their race day packets and encourage their children to participate in the Wermerson Youth Dash.

The Sioux Falls Marathon continues to be a success each year thanks to a large number of volunteers. Those who'd rather not run but want to be part of the event can sign up for a variety of volunteer roles or simply cheer on the athletes at the start and finish line. Neighborhoods and businesses along the race route are encouraged to create an enthusiastic atmosphere by cheering and supporting the athletes on race day.

The race routes are loop courses that start and finish inside the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center. The route features downtown Sioux Falls, Falls Park and the trails along the greenway of the Big Sioux River. The full marathon begins at 6:30 a.m., followed by the half marathon and the 10k at 7 a.m. The Children's Miracle Network 5k begins at 10:15 a.m.
