DASH Around Kampeska

Stokes-Thomas City Park • 90 S Lake Dr WatertownSD  57201 Organized by Watertown DASH

About this event

Join us for a running tour of Beautiful Lake Kampeska located in Watertown, SD! This scenic half marathon will take you on a trip around Lake Kampeska with trails running through Jackson Park, Memorial Park and ending on the waterfront boardwalk at Stokes-Thomas City Park. This course is a complete loop around Lake Kampeska. This scenic course is mostly flat with some rolling hills through the park areas. If the 13.1 is too much, join us for a 2 person 1/2 Marathon Relay that splits these miles in half.

Make this a family weekend! Come Friday night, run or walk the Buffalo Wild Wings 5k, visit one of our unique restaurants and spend the night in one of our great hotels! Then get up early on Saturday morning for our DASH Around Kampeska Half Marathon! Spend the rest of the day Saturday visiting some of Watertown, SD greatest Attractions! We have so much for a family to see and do! Visit the beautiful Terry Redlin Art museum, Bramble Park Zoo, and our downtown Watertown area!

All proceeds from this race will benefit Watertown D.A.S.H.
