Race Information

The Deadwood Mickelson Trail Marathon is a point to point course, beginning in the hamlet of Rochford and ending at the historic Engine House…the Deadwood Trailhead. The scenic point-to-point course through the Black Hills follows a gradual uphill trajectory for the first 14 miles, only to give it all back (and then some) in the second half before finishing in the wild west town of Deadwood. Adding to the challenge is the altitude, with much of the course above a mile high and its high point at 6,200 feet. The crushed limestone and gravel trail is well-groomed and non-technical, making it ideal for your first off-road race or your 50th. For a laid-back marathon in a pristine setting, always bet on the Black Hills.
