#VALLEYSTRONG

Please notice the new  tab up top, 2020 Winter Fitness Series.  Our 501 (c) 3 not for profit Nebraska Run Guru Elite, Inc. has set these events up to help our Valley/Waterloo communities by providing healthy lifestyle opportunities for youth and adults.  And to show how we have recovered from this past March’s devastating flooding.  We are kicking things off on January 4th with the Rust Buster 5K  Then we’ll have a howling good time on January 18th at the  Full Wolf Moon 5K   Our series wraps up with the 8th annual Two Rivers Valentine’s Day 5K on February 8th, registration opening soon.

The 14th annual Nebraska Trail Run is set for Saturday April 4th.  Some very exciting news coming regarding our return to the storied Platte River State Park course.  Dubbed the “8th Most Challenging Trail  Run in the United States} by Business Insider Magazine.  We listened to our trail running community and are bringing back the pain and suffering that makes this a one of a kind event.  Did I mention the beer garden?

That is just the beginning of our efforts!  The 2019 Valley 7 Lakes Marathon course was wiped out by the floods.  We’ve set the 2020 Valley 7 Lakes Marathon date for Saturday April 25th and  are hitting the ground running!  Douglas County has resurfaced the scenic country roads with a nice soft asphalt finish, perfect for 13.1 or 26.2 miles of running.  Registration is open: https://runsignup.com/Race/NE/Valley/Valley7LakesMarathon

Our recovery winds up with the Valley Days 1500 Meters, Nebraska’s only Metric Mile.  Saturday August 8th.  Proceeds will benefit the Valley Days Foundation established to help further the recovery effort for those that have lost the most.  Registration coming soon.  Thank you for marking your calendars.
