The best the Black Hills of Wyoming and South Dakota have to offer, the Sundance to Spearfish Marathon course is rated as one of the most beautiful courses in the world. Almost entirely downhill except for one tough hill from mile 2.00 to 2.56 miles with 169 ft gain. First … MORE

    Although this course was to be downhill and fast and for most of the runners that was the case. I’m a slower runner to begin with and the downhill on the 2nd half caught up to me. But it was absolutely beautiful and I enjoyed the support of the Race director, and his volunteers were wonderful! Well organized small town race!!! We had perfect weather and even the post race chocolate milk and grilled cheese sandwiches!! (And a lot more!) you’ll love this race and it can count as either Wyoming or South Dakota if you are a 50 state hopeful!

    The course is stunning. The hill at mile 2 is tough but very runnable. I suggest gaiters as there are loose pebbles. Wear a pullover to start as it is cold at the top. Also be aware there are only a couple bathrooms on the course and you have to detour to get to them. The race director was great and the volunteers were so helpful. They tracked every singe runner the whole tune over radio. The ride to the start is fun too because you meet people from all over. The course is on but the road part is in a very wide shoulder and people drive slow because it is a scenic byway. I wouldn’t change a thing about this race.
