Due to the coronavirus, the Brookings Marathon has been postponed to Sept. 12.
Race director Matt Bien shared, "This is a challenging time for all of us. But as a running community, we are always up to a challenge. The web site (see login below) will be updated to keep runners informed of any future changes. We look forward to welcoming you to Brookings later this year or next. In the meantime, stay safe and keep running!"

On June 21, 1970, Brookings hosted its first marathon, appropriately named the Longest Day Marathon. In 2004, the course was revised and the race name changed to the Brookings Marathon.
This September marks the 51st running of the 25th oldest marathon in the US.
As it has since 2004, the course includes historic neighborhoods, beautiful parks, bike paths, and tree-lined streets, all supported by hundreds of wonderful volunteers. Opportunities abound for family and friends to cheer along the way.
Online registration is currently available for the Marathon, Half Marathon and Marathon Relay through www.allsportscentral.com
