The Good Life Halfsy

Halfsy the distance, twice the fun. Some would call it a half marathon. We call it the Halfsy. The Good Life Halfsy is more than a half marathon. It’s a fun filled weekend.

There is no place like Nebraska. A true hometown race with a homegrown after party, complete with watermelon & sweetcorn.

Havest Moon Hustle 10K

Fast, Flat and in the Dark. A Harvest Moon provides a perfect opportunity for a night trail run. The flat and fast out-and-back course is the perfect opportunity to set a PR, or simply enjoy an evening run with friends in the cool autumn air.

About Pink Gorilla Events

Pink Gorilla Events is an independent event production company based in Lincoln, Nebraska and founded in 2008. Events that are owned and run by Pink Gorilla Events include the Market to Market Relay Series, Good Life Halfsy half marathon, Born & Raced In Nebraska 10K Series, Leprechaun Chase 10K, Cornfield Cornfield 10K and Harvest Moon Hustle 10K.

Our passion is creating unique, large scale hyper-local, signature running experiences that appeal to elite athletes just as much as the casual fun-runner. Our races are not only popular, but they sell out and are marked on runners’ calendars year after year. We pride ourselves on innovation, attention to detail, and creating a great experience for everyone on race day.

We are proud of events and hope you can be a part of one as a runner, spectator, volunteer or sponsor.

Volunteer

Pink Gorilla Events has many volunteer opportunities that play a key role to the success of the race. We really appreciate the effort of our volunteers and strive to make it a fun experience. There are two ways to volunteer with any Pink Gorilla Event.

1.)   Group of Volunteers – Community and/or non-profit groups consisting of 10 or more people who oversee an area like a water stop, race recovery or an exchange point.  Groups receive a goodwill donation for their efforts.

2.)   Individual Volunteers – We can always use extra people to help out on race day and race week. Depending on your availability and where you live, we can find some way for you to help make the race awesome!
