Our race offers an opportunity for you to shake off the confines of quarantine, experience fresh air and beautiful landscapes, and provide support for Western Nebraska Community College students who need help now more than ever. 

We are closely watching 2021 USATF Covid-19 restrictions. For 2021, USATF is requiring social distancing. We welcome and encourage masks, but they are not required per local health regulations.

 

We WILL require masks on the buses to the full start and half relay exchange points.

 

See more info in our runner race guide.

If you are sick or exhibiting any Covid-19  related symptoms in the week prior to the race you MAY NOT participate in the event. Please cancel your plans to attend, and contact us for a deferral to 2022.
