Brownlee Road and Highway 97
Highway 83, between Thedford and Valentine.
Sandhills is an awesome adventure. The course, through rolling green ranchland, is drop dead gorgeous, particularly as the sun rises at the start of the race. While they’re on the course, runners will be racing just a few miles south of Nebraska’s Valentine National Wildlife Refuge, whose 72,000 acres are filled with shallow lakes and marshes that are home to some of the best bird-watching areas around the northern central Plains region. Thousands of geese and ducks stop to feed here during their annual spring migration period in April and May, and the refuge also features more than 40 miles of hiking trails among its sand dunes.
The Sandhills Marathon begins near the west end of the Brownlee Road, where it meets Highway 97, between Mullen and Valentine. The Road, a one-lane blacktop, winds southeast through the Wamaduze Valley until it reaches the town of Brownlee (unincorporated), then runs east along the north bank of the North Loup River. The course finishes on Highway 83, between Thedford and Valentine.
