Jerry Dunn of Lean Horse Productions Inc. presents a check for $2,700 to Shannon Percy of the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks on behalf of the Deadwood Mickelson Trail Marathon. Dunn and his staff contribute much of the success of the marathon and half marathon to the fact that it occurs on the Mickelson Trail. “Our mission from the beginning has been to bring the ‘running tourist’ to the Hills, and specifically to the Mickelson Trail and this year, thanks to the great word of mouth advertising by past participants, we were able to bring 1,300 runners and another 1,500 family members and friends to the Mickelson Trail,” Dunn Said. Lean Horse Productions would also like to thank Scheel’s AllSport; Premier Bank; Coca Cola; the City of Deadwood; and the Deadwood Chamber of Commerce for making the event possible.
