Be part of the history of Jack 15.
For 54 years, runners have been making an annual trek from White, S.D., to Brookings, S.D., making it the oldest road race in the Midwest. The 55th running of the 15.2-mile course from Hooker and Main in White to the Campanile in Brookings is Sept. 23.
Our most notable change this year is the addition of medals to runners who complete the full distance.
So start training for Prairie Striders’ version of an ultra-half marathon or grab some friends and form a relay team.
The Jack 15 offers the following individual and team competitions:
