AREA ATHLETICS: Registration is open for Prairie Striders Indoor 5K

MARSHALL – Registration has opened for the fourth annual Prairie Striders Indoor 5K at the Sanford/Jackrabbit Athletic Complex on the SDSU campus Saturday, Jan. 20.

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.

Participants will receive a short-sleeved Prairie Striders performance T-shirt.

Packet pickup is immediately preceding the race. Doors open at 7:30 a.m.

Timing will be handled by Dakota Timing, which is timing the SDSU Jim Emmerich Invitational track meet, which begins at noon. Electronic timing won’t eliminate the need for runners 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.

Enter online at Entry fee is $25 through Jan. 14. Late entry is $30.

If the field hasn’t hit the 100-runner cap by 5:30 p.m. Jan. 19, race-day entries taken at the door.

Jay Larsen is co-directing the race with Dave Graves. Contact the directors at or 605-627- 5718.
