Jack 15 Road Race Description
Be part of the history of Jack 15.
For 58 years, runners have been making an annual trek from White, S.D., to Brookings, S.D., making it the oldest road race in the Midwest. The 59th running of the 15.2-mile course from Hooker and Main in White to the Campanile in Brookings via county roads is Saturday, Sept. 25.
Prize money is offered for the top three male and female placers — $200 for first, $100 for second and $50 for third. All entries will receive a long-sleeve, moisture-wicking T-shirt and all finishers of the 15.2-mile run will receive a medal.
So start training for Prairie Striders’ version of an ultra-half marathon or grab some friends and form a relay team.
Medals: Medals to runners who complete the full distance.
