Here at the 605 Running Company, we love to support the local running community. One of the ways that we do that is by sponsoring and running in local races. In January, we were at the Beresford Frostbite 4 which was a very well organized event. It was put on by the local Booster Club and they were all very fun to work with. Earlier this month, we had the pleasure of sponsoring the Chilly Cheeks Race here in Sioux Falls. This race was also a lot of fun. I will be sure to sign up for both of them next year and I would encourage you to do so as well!
Today I wanted to take the time to highlight some other races that we are involved with that are coming up soon.
This Saturday is the River Rat Marathon in Yankton. Overall and Age Group winners can expect gift cards to the 605! Sign up information is Here.
Next weekend is also a big one for us as we will be at the Brookings Marathon expo on Friday night. Visit us at the booth to pick up some last minute gels or Clif Bars and to see a sampling of our products. The half marathon is already full but there is still room in the marathon and Friday’s 5k, check it out Here. The next day, the smART 5k is taking place in Sioux Falls. Learn more about it Here. On Sunday, the Brandon Loyalty Day 5k is taking place in Brandon. You can pick up an entry form at the store or email Beth Hanna at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info. Race day registration is available and is only $20. That’s a steal for a race these days.
If you are looking for a great 5k in June, we are involved with 2 races. First, on the 6th is the Sioux Falls Kidney Fun Run at Sertoma Park. Find more registration information Here. On Friday the 19th, the Race for Hope will begin in Falls Park. Check out their Facebook page Here.
If you are a race director and want to discuss possible sponsorship, please stop in at the store to chat with us.
