Howard Wood Field
The route for the 2016 Sioux Falls Marathon is a loop course that takes you on a scenic 26.2 mile journey around Sioux Falls. You will experience our historic downtown, Falls Park, the Sioux Falls River Greenway, and our award-winning trail alongside the banks of the Big Sioux River.
The city of Sioux Falls offers a fast and flat loop course for its annual Sioux Marathon & Half, which begins at Howard Wood Field and takes runners on an tour of this southwestern South Dakota city's downtown areas and greenway trails along the banks of the Big Sioux River. After the 4-mile marker, the race takes runners from paved city streets onto paved pathways along the 14-mile Greenway Trail, which carves its way through downtown and the outlying areas via parks like Beadle, Cherry Rock and Riverdale Park. The race also runs through the city's best-known Falls Park, which is built around the waterfalls for which the city gets its name on the Big Sioux River. The race continues along the shaded tree-lined trail, a popular local destination for bicyclists, joggers and walkers, turning southward and then eastward as it makes its way to Sertoma Park, the finish line for all three races. About 2,000 runners and walkers crossed the finish line in all races combined at the event's 2012 running, including more than 1,000 finishers in the half marathon alone.
