2020 Sioux Falls Marathon

August 30, 2020 Sioux Falls, SD US 57104 Directions
Countdown to Race Day
The Sioux Falls Marathon Scales Back, Half Marathon Still On

New Date: The Half Marathon is still scheduled as planned for August 30, 2020 with a 7 a.m. start

Due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, we are scaling back this year’s Sioux Falls Marathon weekend to a Half Marathon only.   Our desire all along has been to produce an unaltered event, however, that effort has been proven to be more wishful thinking than practical, unfortunately.

We are sorry to the Full Marathon, 10K & 5K runners who are disappointed in this update.  We share in your disappointment but are also pleased to still offer a live race.  The Half Marathon is still prone to cancellation should the pandemic worsen in the next couple of months.  We will take guidance from the city and Sanford Health on that determination.

All already-registered runners, including those in the half, can choose one of the following options by July 12, 2020:

  • run the half-marathon
  • receive a refund (minus registration vendor fee)
  • defer registration to the 2021 Sioux Falls Marathon
  • donate your 2020 registration to the Children’s Miracle Network

The Half Marathon’s …

  • registration will either be capped at approximately 550 runners or close on July 12, whichever comes first
  • route is yet to be finalized
  • prize money to the top finishers is suspended for this year
  • bibs will likely be mailed prior to race (no expo)
  • start may take place in waves of 50 or 100 runners
  • complete safety protocols will be sent to runners prior to the race

A portion of the event's proceeds will benefit the Children's Miracle Network.

Thank you for your understanding in this unique and challenging time.  We hope you join us for this year’s Half Marathon!

The Sanford Children’s Hospital, the region’s only Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, joined Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in 1986, making it the exclusive Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in eastern South Dakota, southwest Minnesota, northwest Iowa and northern Nebraska.

As always, 100% of funds raised here stay here to help kids in our region
