Yankton’s Riverside Park
Run mostly on paved surfaces, the race takes runners along some beautifully scenic stretches of Yankton’s riverwalk paths, which lie just west of the park and just south of the city’s downtown.
From there, runners in the marathon follow an out-and-back course along the first several miles of the half marathon route, which runs between Riverside Park and Lewis and Clark Lake, which lies just a few miles to the west.
Named for the famed explorers who visited Yankton back during their famous expedition in 1804, the lake also serves as the turnaround point for those running the half, where they then make the turn and head back along the exact route they’ve just run, back to Riverside Park for the marathon finish.
The only significant hills runners encounter occur at between the mile 2 and 3 markers on the way out (and the mile 10 and 11 markers on the way in), along the stretch just after runners have passed the campus of Yankton’s Mt. Marty College, along Highway 52 (West 8th Street).
