Looking for a challenge? We have one for you. Instead of hitting the trails for a 5K this summer, join Sioux Falls Parks and Recreation for one in the river! Not the Sioux River, but the lazy river at Drake Springs Family Aquatic Center. Enjoy the challenge of running a 5K against the current! Not interested in completing 44 laps on your own? No worries. Grab a friend and create a two-person or four-person relay. Open to first 100 registrants. Register early for a T-shirt! Registration required.
