Pure 'Racers'

.5K 'Race'

1:00PM CDT - 3:00PM CDT

South Dakota's Laziest 'Race'

We're calling all couch potatoes everywhere for the first annual .5K 'race' benefiting The Compass Center. Enjoy camaraderie with fellow non-runners, enjoy the Sioux Falls bike trail and have a beer on us. Costumes at the race are encouraged; and you could WIN BIG in our costume contest. By BIG we mean we'll find something cool for you to enjoy. 


Remedy Brewing (8th and Railroad) is hosting both the start and finish line. We'll meet on the east side of Remedy in the patio/dock area. The walk will head toward the bike trail and around a convenient loop located right off the river. Concerned you will need to rest? Don't worry - we have you covered! A large rest area will be accessible anywhere along the loop for when you need your break!

The Cause

The Compass Center works with survivors of sexual and domestic violence, providing FREE counseling services for as long as the counseling is needed. Nearly 700 men, women, and children receive services every year thanks to generous donors. This 'race' is YOUR chance to support survivors in our community! You can also click the 'Donate' button above and start your own fundraiser for the agency.


The Swag

We are stocking up on goodies for you so you can proudly show off your racing prowess all year long. As part of registration, you'll receive:

  • A coveted t-shirt to wear proudly
  • A pretentious oval, Euro style sticker to display in your vehicle wheel
  • Participation medals at the finish line - a coaster, of course. We're holding this at Remedy Brewing, after all.
  • 5 oz brew of choice compliments of our friends at Remedy Brewing
