Sioux Falls Marathon and Half Marathon :: Stories



Running can be gratifying or grueling, inspirational or life altering, and sometimes even humorous. Through running, personal achievement can be met, and new friendships can emerge. The Sioux Falls Marathon wants to glorify all aspects of our runners’ journeys to and from our annual marathon. Whether participating in the full marathon, half marathon or 5K, each runner’s story is important to us, and we believe it should be shared with others! While every story is unique, each conveys the pride that comes from accomplishing their goals. See our collection of runners’ stories below!
