This 5k road race is on a fast, relatively flat and shaded USATF certified course that snakes through downtown and residential Brookings, including passes through downtown main street, near Pioneer Park's Summer Arts Festival, by the children's museum, and through Hillcrest Park. The course is well marked with very light traffic.
The price of entry is worth it, as entry includes a unique race day t-shirt, a complete Beef and Eggs Breakfast, age group awards and medals, and a chance at over $1,200 in prize money. There will be a free children's fun-run immediately following the 5k at roughly 9:00am.
