See you in 2019!
605 Running Company Half Marathon
Welcome to year #1 of the 605 Running Company Half Marathon! Our event has completely SOLD OUT in record time. We are humbled and terrified by this all at the same time. This page is dedicated to the details of our event. For questions regarding the 605 Running Company Half Marathon please email email@example.com.
Our event is scheduled for Saturday, April 21st. We will start in finish at historic Falls Park in the farmers market area. Gun time will be 7am. This event will be a VIP running experience including chip timing, medals, awesome swag and many more amazing perks.
The race start is located on the North Side of Falls Park at the Farmer’s Market Shelter at E Falls Park Drive/N 2ndAve.
Limited parking at the Fall’s Park Farmer’s Market Shelter, but ample parking throughout one of the four Falls Park parking lots or the Farmer’s Market Additional Parking.
Packet pick-up will be on Friday April 20 from 2:00p-7:00p at 605 Running Co. (124 S. Phillips Ave). Race day packet pick-up will be available from 6:15a-6:30a at the start/finish area.
Bag drop will be available at the start/finish area. You will need your bib number to drop off and pick-up your bag. All items dropped off MUST be in a bag. Bags will not be provided.
The course begins and finishes at the Falls Park Farmer’s Market Shelter. After running through Falls Park, runners will head south on the Sioux Falls Trail. Staying on the trail, runners will head to Yankton Trails Park, passing many great spectator spots along the way. Once in Yankton Trails Park, runners will enter the Bensane Turn Around Zone and begin their journey back to the finish line. This is an out and back course.
Entrants are expected to be able to complete the course in 4:00:00 (18:19 Per Mile). Runners falling behind this time restriction will be allowed to stay on course, but aid stations/finish area may be torn down at this time. If this is a concern for you, please reach out to Co-Race Director Grant Watley (Grant@run605.com).
Aid stations will be featured along the route. Each aid station will feature water, nutritional items, sports drink, a portable restroom, and a certified athletic trainer provided by Avera. Please refer to the course map for locations of aid stations.
Avera is the presenting sponsor of this event. They have graciously agreed to staff each aid station with a certified athletic trainer as well as medical doctor’s at the start/finish line.
A half way split will be recorded by the timing company and added to the finish results.
Unofficial results will be located near the finish line as runners complete the course. Official results will be posted on www.run605.comas soon as possible after the race. Times for each runner begin as they cross the start line, so a runner starting in the back of the field will not have their time begin until they have crossed the start line.
Awards will be given to the top 3 males and females in the race based on gun times. Every finisher will receive a finishers medal.
Any weather related alerts or race alerts will be broadcast on the 605 Running Co. social media accounts and website.
