A day-long team running relay race, that starts at sun up seven runners and a van take on a scenic course as they make their way to the downtown finish.

Plan your Running Road Trip

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.

Run Your Halfsy Off

The Born & Raced In Nebraska 10K Series powered by Madonna ProActive & TherapyPlus, consists of three of Nebraska’s most talked about 10K races each year. Run all three and get a special 30K BLACKOUT completion medal.


Combine equal parts European cycling culture, Americana camping life, and adult day camp – and you’ve got a recipe for the most fun you’ll have all summer. Join us for a weekend celebration of cycling for riders of all skill levels. And music, game, and beer enthusiasts… we’ve got you covered, too.

Let’s Ride

This spring we Skedaddle! Join us for the inaugural 2019 Sioux Falls Skedaddle half marathon on April 28.

This Spring We Skedaddle

#EarnYourWorm and kick off the running season with the first big race of the year in west Omaha. Fly out of Walnut Grove park at sunrise, circle beautiful Zorinsky lake, and then return for free brunch in the park. Did someone say mimosas? Oh yeah, we did!

Earn Your Worm

A St. Paddy’s Day themed run with a twist, where ladies get a head start and the guys chase them.

Join the Chase

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

Run For The Corn

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.

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

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!
