    This race begins in a waterfront park and is run mostly along paved bicycle paths. Heading west, the course goes up a slight incline and then drops down a long, steep hill. Once reaching the Gavins Point Dam, the course goes through the scenic Lewis and Clark State Park with views of Lewis and Clark Lake. Waterfowl and other birds are numerous in this peaceful stretch. After reaching the 10-mile mark, we headed back the way we came until we got to the dam. We then skirted the west side of Lake Yankton, then traveled back to highway 52 and up a long, steep hill to the city limits. We then turned north, then east and hit the Auld Brokaw Trail which follows Marne Creek. This trail goes underneath several road underpasses, which dip down steeply under the road and then climb short, but steep inclines onto the other side. The drop at these underpasses is only about 5 feet, but the steepness prevents you from maintaining a steady pace at this part of the race which is less than 5 miles from the finish. The trail circles around to the finish line which is at the scenic waterfront park. The medals were small and weren’t race specific, but nicely done.
