Sioux Falls Area Running Club

Our 250+ members run road, track and trails for health, competition, community and fun. In the September/October Newsletter it stated that "It's official.

The SFARC has been around a long time, but began officially on February 3, 1998, when members of the former Total Fitness Club held a meeting and adopted the current name.

The photo says it all โ€” run in support of The Banquet Sioux Falls on Thanksgiving day! Will you join us?


Heads up for those heading out to Big Sioux Recreation Area over the next several weeks!

Good afternoon folks!

Over the next few weeks, we will have work being completed at our suspension bridge, the dirt trail from the shelter parking lot to the suspension bridge and the dirt trail from the campground to the shelter parking lot.

We will be having a contractor adding rip rap around the abutments underneath the suspension bridge. The contractor will also be adding gravel onto these trails to make them smoother and easier folks with ADA needs.

Work is supposed to be about 2-3 weeks and should be done around mid-December.

During work times, the suspension bridge and these trails may be closed - signs will be posted notifying our park guests.

Thanks again!

A beautiful evening for our last group run at Good Earth State Park for the season, followed with some tailgate snacking!
Thanks to all who shared in some miles and snacks this year! We'll see you back out here when daylight returns in the spring!
In the meantime, if you're looking for any running accountability, reach out on our group run message board on Facebook, or check out group run options!


Tomorrow (Thursday) night is our last official Thursday night group trail run of the season!
Join us for some miles followed with food!
We're planning a small potluck of a smorgasbord of snacks - bring something if you want (baked goods, leftover Halloween candy...), but not required! Do bring your running shoes and appetite!
Hope to see you there!


Tonight's group run was a nice shake out for many of these runners as they take on the Glacier Hills Ultra 20k/30k/50k races this Saturday! Good luck to everyone running and volunteering!

If you've never witnessed a sunrise from the bluff on the Prairie Vista Loop trail at Big Sioux Rec, you're missing out!๐Ÿ’š


Another perfect autumn evening for leaf peeping and trail running!
We only have 2 weeks left of our Thursday group runs! Don't miss out on the fun!

Newton Hills course is ready! Trails are not as bad as one might think. The 2-mile route is in pretty good shape. The 6-mile route (4 mile all-purpose section) is muddier, but it can be avoided in most spots.

We are also running the 6-mile course in reverse! It will improve flow through the start/finish area and ease congestion at the start.


Packet Pickup Today from 4-7pm @ 605 Running Company!

Also on race morning from 8-8:45am.


We all agreed that the hardest part of tonight's run was getting out the door! Having acoutabili-buddies helps!
Our Thursday night group run can be your accoutibili-buddy too - but only for 3 more weeks!


Need some last-minute training or carb loading for our final race of the trail series this weekend? Join us tomorrow evening at Good Earth State Park at 6 pm for our group run! Afterward, bring some dry clothes to change into and we'll meet up at the Barrel House for some food and fellowship!
