North Dakota > Sheyenne Shuffle Half Marathon & 5K
Valley City, ND



Saturday, September 17, 2011

Event Details

From the southern tip of Lake Ashtabula in southeastern North Dakota, the Sheyenne River Valley Scenic Byway takes runners southward toward Valley City for the Sheyenne Shuffle Half Marathon & 5K, which is run at the beginning of fall each year and shows off in glorious color the area's scenic fall foliage, with its deep red, green and golden yellow leaves.

The point-to-point race starts at the Baldhill Dam on Lake Ashtabula, and runs 13.1 miles along the scenic byway -- made up of paved pathways and roadways -- across land that's mostly flat and fast, past open farm fields and groves of trees as well as through the city streets of Valley City. The race course is just part of the scenic byway's 63 miles, which stretch all the way from the lake to Lisbon, N.D., and which has been included by National Geographic magazine in its Guide to Scenic Byways and Highways.

The finish line for the half-marathon lies in Valley City, and runners may also participate in the Barnes County Relay for Life 5K Run/Walk, which starts and ends at the City of Bridges.

Race Weather & Climate

Pre-fall weather conditions in Valley City tend to vary widely, with September temperatures that average between 70°F and 43°F. Rainfall averages also tend to be moderate to low, as precipitation averages about 2.1 inches for the month.
