Jack 15 Road Race Description

Be part of the history of Jack 15.

For 61 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 62nd running of the 15.2-mile course from Hooker and Main in White to the Campanile in Brookings via county roads is Sept. 21.

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.

  • Custom medals to runners who complete the full distance.
  • Early start is offered for walkers and SLOW runners only. Those wanting an early start must contact the race director a week in advance of the race.

The Jack 15 offers the following individual and team competitions:

  • Individual competitors may run the entire 15.2 miles.
  • 5-member relay team running 3 miles each
  • 3-member relay team running 5 miles each.
  • 2-member relay team running 7.5 miles each.
  • Relay teams may consist of all men, all women, or be co-ed.
