April 27 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
In the southeastern corner of South Dakota, life revolves around the Missouri River that flows along the southern edge of town. Perhaps then it is only fitting that this race gets its name from the waterway that brings commerce, people, and goods from the rest of the country to Yankton.
The day is filled with events that include a 5K bike ride, as well as a 5K run, new this year a 10K race, and a half marathon.
The River Rat Race follows a route that starts and finishes at Yankton’s Riverside Park, which looks across the Missouri River onto Nebraska.
