Join Sandhills Marathon

You’ll be running on a one lane black top on this net down hill course. Most of the course is comprised of rolling hills, but most are pretty small. Race organizers strongly discourage the use of headphones as this is not a closed course. They also advise to be aware that snakes are sometimes on the road. The race features a long, gradual downhill point-to-point route that unfolds along the Brownlee Road in Cherry County, Neb.

Filled with a combination of pristine prairie grasses and hilly sand dunes that lie atop the massive Ogallala Aquifer here in the Cornhusker state, the region known as the Sandhills of Nebraska plays host to the annual Sandhills Marathon & Half Marathon this year as spring is giving way to summer.

The road itself is a 25.7 mile one lane paved road that cuts through the Sandhill region of Nebraska. The extra half mile is added when runners do a quick out and back into the town of Brownlee. The course has a few rolling hills, but mostly it is in a valley with a 330 ft. decrease in elevation. The road was made for running a marathon!

Course Highlights

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.
