Thanks Nebraska for a beautiful run with great scenery, hosts, volunteers and good old fashioned Nebraska hospitality. You made everything easy. Worth the trip from Arizona and the temps were amazing!

Great job. I had a blast. The route was a lot of fun and everything flowed very well. I’ll be back next year!

Loved it! Fun race with a great course. Well organized and they have the best swag and finisher medal. Small but mighty – it was easy to make friends along the course and enjoy a drink together after the finish. Very spectator friendly.
