Registration open for Prairie Striders Indoor 5K
The sixth annual Prairie Striders Indoors 5K represents a rare chance to race indoors, using the SDSU track at the Sanford/Jackrabbit Athletic Complex.
Entries will be limited to the first 100 entries. The race will be run in two heats — one at 8:30 a.m. for those planning to finish in 24 minutes or less and the other at 9 a.m.
Also this year, we've added a non-competitive walk. Complete as many laps as you wish between 7:30 and 8:15 a.m. Proceeds from both events go to the Prairie Striders/Phil LaVallee Memorial Scholarship.
DON'T WAIT! Register Online Now, save money and reserve your place in the race.
If the field hasn't filled, there will be limited race day entries taken at the door.
Participants can choose between a short-sleeved Prairie Striders performance shirt or Prairie Striders socks.
Packet pickup is immediately preceding the race. Doors open at 7 a.m.
All levels of runners are welcome as the race will have two heats — 8:30 a.m. for those planning to run in 24 minutes or less and the other at 9 a.m.
Runners will need to track their laps (16 2/3). Lap counters will only be able to track the leaders, so runners may want to use a clicker or a function on their watch or smartphone to avoid confusion.
Jay Larsen is co-directing the race with Dave Graves. Contact the directors at
