Route description
Route description

The race will run in reverse from last year's course. The race starts at the Ghost Canyon Dude Ranch and is run on a well-packed dirt road for about 3 miles before turning onto pavement.

This is a challenging course with lots of gorgeous views of Mount Rushmore and the surrounding Black Hills! Though there's a lot of uphill, you'll be rewarded with amazing views and a final downhill stretch before finishing in the town of Keystone, SD.
