The Dam Marathon
Spectacular views and fresh air define the Dam Marathon, which begins on the west side of the Hills Creek Dam and runs along lakefront path. Established in 2014, the Dam Marathon attracts runners from all over the country for both its beauty and challenges. As an added perk, the dam opens its gates for the marathon, a rare treat that allows participants to experience running across the actual dam. Hydration stations are also set up along the route, and all runners are equipped with a detailed map of the course so they don't have to stop and ask a tree for directions. The Dam Marathon ends at Greenwaters Park where live music, food, and fun await.
